Dates & Locations:

The goal of this training is to provide ICD-10-CM training through lecture, discussion and coding exercises, including the need to follow ICD-10-CM Coding and Long Term Care Guidelines and to understand the impact of ICD-10-CM codes with the implementation of PDPM.

Target Audience: Health care professionals who assign or who use ICD-10-CM Codes in the Long Term Care, Swing Bed or Skilled Nursing setting and who will need to understand the relationship between ICD-10 and PDPM.

Note: While PDPM will apply only to skilled admissions starting October 1, 2019, information covered in this workshop will also be appropriate for non-skilled admissions as the importance of accurate code assignment, sequencing and quality of documentation is the same no matter what setting or payment status.
