New at Noyce Consulting — diagnosis
Education takes time and money. But shouldn't travel be optional?
We're all speeding toward the ICD-10 update (Oct 1, 2016) and OASIS-C2 (Jan 1, 2017) implementations. Come with me (or virtually take me with you) for the next hospice and home health care update adventures.
Got questions about ICD-10 diagnosis coding for hospice or home health?
Until recently, diagnosis coders had no option but to request official diagnosis coding guidance and clarification from CMS' designated coding gurus at the American Hospital Association's (AHA) "Coding Clinic." But hospice and home health agencies report receiving conflicting and/or inapplicable guidance that could lead to payment delays or claim denials.
