The FY2019 ICD-10-CM code changes take effect on October 1, 2018. Home health and hospice agencies are coming under stronger regulatory scrutiny and are finding themselves hard pressed to provide clean, accurate supporting documentation for auditors and surveyors. Coding accuracy is key to protecting your agency from deficiencies and penalties, but staying current with changes and best practices can be overwhelming.

During this webinar, we provide valuable information needed to ensure coding accuracy and safeguard your agency.
