Nationally recognized ICD-10 expert and Libman Education course author Lynn Kuehn, MS, RHIA, CCS-P, FAHIMA, is slated to present a webinar for Wolters Kluwer on July 30 titled “Clean Up Time – ICD-10-PCS Code Set Deletions for FY 2020.”

About the webinar:
We’ll talk about how CMS is using the 2020 ICD-10-PCS Code Set to address “inconsistent, illogical, and impossible to apply” codes. The update for FY 2020 will address two major families of codes where the data has been of poor quality due to codes that were impossible to assign. The proposed changes for FY 2020 include removal of the bifurcation of arteries from all except cardiac (affecting over 1800 codes), and removal of the external approach option for breast surgeries (they really are inside!).

Join our webinar and be ready for the code set deletions effective October 1, 2019 and how they affect your data:

– Analyze your data for current coding patterns
– Project the impact of the new coding structure
– Identify educational opportunities for coders and providers

Libman Education course author Rose T. Dunn, MBA, RHIA, FACHE, FHFMA, CPA, CHPS, FAHIMA, is slated to present an “Introduction to HCC Coding” webinar for Wolters Kluwer on July 16 at 1pm.

HCCs, like DRGs and APCs, are based on clinical documentation and the codes assigned. Specific coding is a necessity and the coding professional must be proactive in addressing documentation deficiencies. Join Rose T. Dunn as she goes beyond an overview of Medicare Advantage Hierarchical Condition Categories to answer the following questions:

  • What are HCCs?
  • Which conditions trigger HCCs?
  • What is the RAF and how are RAFs calculated?
  • How will the role of the coding professional change?
  • What is changing with HCCs?
