NAHC Adds ICD-10 Resource Page to its Website

An  ICD-10 Resource Page has been added to the NAHC web site to help home care and hospice agencies transition to the new coding system, as well as to provide uup-to-date information on the ICD-10 update. To see NAHC’s new ICD-10 Resource page, please click here.

NAHC and the home health and hospice vendor community have a shared goal in assuring  that agencies are adequately preparing for the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 diagnosis coding. Included on the page are education and guidance materials along with tools to assist our members in attaining  that goal.

The materials have been provided by home health and hospice vendors who work with the NAHC membership. In addition to the materials, the vendors have provided their contact information along with a brief company profile.
