My 2017 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual came today!
With just over 3 weeks until ICD-10's revisions for 2017 replace the current ICD-10 version, UPS dropped the box on my doorstep. Whew! I need that to get ready for thousands of ICD-10 diagnosis code changes that take effect October 1, 2016 with the implementation of ICD-10-CM's 2017 edition.
Still scrambling to prepare for the changes?
Maybe I can help with that.
Sept 27 and 28, I'll teach an ICD-10 update workshop for UAHC and UHPCO in Utah.
The Center for Medicare Advocacy (CMA) continues working to increase access to home health and hospice services for qualified beneficiaries who, unfortunately, are denied access to their Medicare entitlements based on erroneous coverage information. Some home health providers, either due to agency policy to control costs, or due to misunderstanding of Medicare coverage policies, withhold entitlements that are medically reasonable and necessary for qualified beneficiaries, to recover from an illness or injury, or to prevent or slow decline.
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.
