Improving Accuracy in ICD 10 Coding for Home Health CarePurpose
This class provides hands-on practice and guidance to improve accuracy in the use of the expanded code set. Coders can use the pre-test course to gauge their current knowledge or simply proceed with this course to practice application of the codes through a series of home care case scenarios.
This is a self-paced course with a knowledge check quiz after the lesson. Participants must have access to an ICD-10 CM Code book in order to look up codes during the course and post-test. If an ICD-10 CM code book is not available, participants may click on the CMS website link to access and identify codes through this online resource: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD10/2017-ICD-10-CM-and-GEMs.html.
After the final lesson you will be required to take the final exam. You must score 80% or higher to pass the course and obtain a certificate of completion.
