SNF ICD.10 Coding: Integrating SNF Coding Systems In Preparation for PDPM

This course will review common challenges skilled nursing facilities face regarding ICD-10 coding and provide 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. Upcoming code changes impacting the nursing facility setting will be reviewed, with a focus on the diagnosis codes that impact reimbursement under the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) taking effect October 1, 2019.

At the conclusion of this course, the learner will:

  • Understand best practices for diagnosis coding in the SNF setting
  • Develop skills to prevent common coding errors in the SNF setting
  • Identify clinical information that should be documented to support ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding specificity
