ICD-10 is here to stay. As ICD-10 kicks off, it is important to understand that it is not the end of ICD-10 training; it’s only the beginning.

Struggling with ICD-10 Challenges in Home Care?

Post ICD-10 implementation, it will be important to focus on current issues that may arise as the result of implementation. It is a critical time for home health coders to master the new code set and adhere to the changes to commonly used home care diagnosis codes. In addition to this, you need to make sure your staff can analyze and stay abreast of your practice’s financial health. You need to learn simple steps to evaluate diagnosis documentation.

Looking out for ICD-10 Coding Guidelines and Updates?

To guide you along the way, TCI has launched the Home Health ICD-10 Handbook. This handbook will keep you on track with ICD-10-CM coding. Start with a brief history of the ICD code set, learn the way ICD-10-CM codes are composed and how the structure differs from ICD-9-CM. Next, you’ll find out how to use ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM General Equivalence Mappings (GEMS) to see how codes in the old code set match up to the new codes.

Know what payers want providers to know about ICD-10
