Come to the Home Care Coding and Regulatory Symposium

On Jan. 27-28, I will hold a two-day seminar on coding and its interactions with regulatory, OASIS and therapy issues. This is just a teaser … more to come soon!

It’s $385 for the first attendee; $350 for more than one attendee from your organization. And a quick note that it’s in Vegas at the Monte Carlo, and we’ve gotten rooms for less than $50 a night! Cheap hotel and great education!

Home Care Coding and Regulatory Symposium

Something for Everyone! Because coding affects or is affected by OASIS and regulatory changes, we focus on how the pieces work together, especially with recently enacted, and upcoming changes. The most current issues:

  • How 2011 PPS Changes Impact your Operations
  • Additional Changes Impacting Home Care in April 2011
  • How Coding and OASIS Add to Your Case Mix Score
  • How Coding Errors Impact your Payment and Outcomes
  • 2011 Change to the 5010 Format and ICD-10-CM Forward Thinking
  • Interactive Coding Sessions on both days—Send your most complex scenarios!
  • Wound Care Coding–All Wrapped Up
  • Myths and Truths that Impact Therapy Coding
  • How to Support Your Coding and Appeal Downcoding
