Webinar Description and Objectives
CMS has said multiple times that hospices should follow coding guidelines and should be coding more than the one terminal diagnosis. Improved insight into coding guidelines will provide strategies and solutions for compliance with the regulatory mandates from CMS. The timelines for new edits denying primary diagnoses of debility and failure to thrive are unknown but will be announced soon. Educating referring physicians and the operational impact on your monthly claims needs to be analyzed and adjustments implemented now. Lisa will discuss the regulatory mandates and add insight into coding in hospice.
- Describe how the terminal diagnosis and related diagnoses should be identified.
- Discuss the CMS decision to prohibit debility and failure to thrive as terminal illnesses and alternatives to debility and failure to thrive.
- Identify methods to improve compliance with coding guidelines and describe the patient's complex medical needs related to the terminal diagnosis.
