Accredited Hours

It is the goal of every skilled nursing facility to provide quality resident care. Inaccurate medical coding can interrupt that goal, leading to frustration and confusion that results in recording wrong diagnoses and delaying reimbursement. Never let improper coding hurt your residents or facility again!

Learn how to get the most out of the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) through the mastery of proper coding. Join renowned LTC educator, Carol Maher, for a live virtual workshop sponsored by The Compliance Store. The ICD-10-CM Coding for Post-Acute Care webinar is a must for long-term care professionals who desire quality care and smoother billing cycles.

Course Description

This 2-day course will walk the participants through the process of determining and identifying the most appropriate ICD-10-CM codes.  Participants will actively use the correct process for using the ICD-10-CM Coding Manual, from identification of the main term through the final code selection and review the ICD-10-CM Coding guidelines and chapter-specific guidelines. The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) has increased the importance of accurate ICD-10-CM diagnoses by focusing payment based on resident characteristics. ICD-10-CM codes and diagnoses will impact the OT, PT, SLP, NTA, and nursing components under PDPM.  State case mix systems are reviewing the PDPM process to determine how the new HIPPS codes can impact state Medicaid payment in the future.

Learning Objectives
  1. State the correct process for determining the ICD-10 code from the physician’s documented diagnoses.
  2. Practice ICD-10 -CM coding using the ICD-10-CM Coding Manual from the identification of the main term and the main subterms in the alphabetic index.  Use the code identified from the alphabetic index to locate the most specific code for the diagnosis in the tabular list based on the highest specificity for the diagnosis documented by the physician in the medical record.
  3. Explain how the 7th character is added when the base code has less than 6 characters.
  4. Report one strategy for determining the primary diagnosis.
Required Material:

Please make sure you have the latest ICD-10-CM coding manual. Your manual needs to have codes that are valid from October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022.

These are available from multiple publishers and sources. The one Carol will be working from is available from Amazon.
