ICD-10 Coding Workshop
Summary of course: This course will review common challenges skilled nursing facilities face regarding ICD-10 coding and share best practices for accurate diagnosis coding across the interdisciplinary team. Participants will learn about common coding errors seen in skilled nursing facilities and review coding guidelines for these areas. In addition, the course will provide a review of the importance of coding specificity, local rules of coverage, sequencing for billing, and best practices for the assignment of diagnosis codes.
