Surviving & Thriving PDGM in 2020 Webinar – Part 2 of 4
In our continuing series on surviving and thriving PDGM, we will look at feedback from the industry and how clinical categories and comorbidities are being billed. Agencies have the unique opportunity to be paid on changes in care and patient’s condition in a 60-day episode. Knowing how to act upon this is critical!
Understand how to tell when you do not have a valid primary diagnosis code and what action to take to get a HIPPS code and bill for your Services
Understand what actions need to be taken when transitioning from one 30-day claim to the subsequent 30-day claim
Verbalize actions required for OASIS and diagnosis code changes between claims
