Hospice Coding - ICD-10-CM Code Updates Effective 10/1/19

The Association for Home and Hospice Care of NC is excited to bring you a webinar on Hospice coding and new and changed ICD-10-CM code Updates effective October 1, 2019.

Although the importance of coding in Hospice took on such an important role about 5 years ago, many Hospice agencies are still unsure about the coding guidelines for hospice.  

The FY2020 ICD-CM final code set includes 273 new, 30 revised and 21 deleted codes as well as 98 Tabular Instruction changes.

In this session will focus on a review the coding guidelines for hospice. In addition, we will also review the October 2019 coding updates, focusing on changes and challenging coding regulations.

Nurse Contact Hours will be offered.
