We’ve survived the implementation of ICD-10. But since October we’ve found that there are many things we have to do differently because this is a brand new coding system (code set) for our country. Coding, without all these massive changes, is a very complex topic. Yet even for those of us who tried to prepare for the switch -- there were issues that had not been anticipated. Join Sparkle Sparks in this 90-minute webinar as she shares the most common questions that she’s gotten regarding ICD-10-CM. • Which 7th character should home health use? • How many codes should we be using? • Can we really leave M1025 blank? These questions will be discussed as well as other topics that have bedeviled home health coders both before & after the implementation of ICD-10. As always, Sparkle will provide the sources for her information and strategies to solve common coding problems.
