The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) will implement the PDPM reimbursement system for Fee For Service Medicare beneficiaries on Oct. 1, 2019.

The ICD-10 diagnosis coding is a significant part of the Non-Therapy Ancillary (NTA) component of the PDPM reimbursement system. Providers will be required to know the clinical diagnoses that impact the care of the residents in the facility and the ICD-10 codes for these diagnoses. The diagnoses are included in the MDS assessment section I and are a component of the PDPM that will assist providers to achieve accurate reimbursement. ICD-10 diagnosis coding is not a simple process but with education team members will be able to competently and confidently complete the ICD-10 diagnosis coding.

These webinars are designed to provide assistance and information for the interdisciplinary team members related to ICD-10 diagnosis coding. It will assist team members to determine codes, find the codes, know exclusions and the number of digits in which to expand the code.

Webinar attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the method to determine the main diagnosis code for resident admission
  • Determine the admission diagnosis code and ICD-10 diagnosis code
  • Understand exclusions
  • Explain expansion of the diagnosis codes to the correct digit
