Acquired absence of unspecified great toe (Z89-419); struck by orca, initial encounter (W56.22xA). These are some of the new codes contained in ICD-10-CM scheduled to take effect in just under 12 months. Although humorous, these codes are an example of the new complexity that home health and hospice providers will face as these changes take place.
If you missed VNAA’s Oct. 22 Professional Lecture Series webinar, entitled “The Clock is Ticking...Are You Ready For ICD-10-CM?” and presented by Lisa Selman-Holman JD, BSN, RN, HCS-D, COS-C, there is still another opportunity to learn more about how to get your agency prepared.
At VNAA’s Southeast Regional Meeting, held Dec. 5-6 in High Point, N.C., Susan Carmichael, MS, RN, CHCQM, COC-C, FAIHQ, Executive Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer at Select Data, will present a thorough analysis of the changes and what your agency will need to consider when preparing for Oct. 2014.
