Piloting the Terminal Diagnosis in Hospice with Accurate Coding
Tuesday, April 13, 2021, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM EDT
Category: Workshop

With the growing hospice numbers and increased federal dollars comes increased scrutiny, which will be ongoing. It is imperative that hospice agencies look at their overall processes and determine weak areas, one of which is lack of support of the terminal diagnosis and prognosis. This presentation will aid hospice staff in identifying the importance of appropriately coding the principal hospice diagnosis and the required documentation to support coding the primary diagnosis with accuracy. In addition, we will identify ICD-10 coding rules and terminology to better understand their application to hospice coding.

Who Should Attend: Hospice RN, Coder, Administrator, Executive Director, Agency Director
