Diagnosis coding is the most important aspect the agency has to revenue and developing the case-mix under PDGM. CMS has limited the diagnosis codes significantly that are permitted under PDGM. We will be discussing several of the top current primary diagnosis codes that agencies use today, but will not be permitted under PDGM. Attend this webinar to discover these codes and prepare for PDGM.
1. Understand DX Codes that are no longer permitted under PDGM
2. Obtain information that can be provided to physicians training on PDGM
3. Describe what the Synergy software will do to notify agencies of DX codes that are no longer billable as primary under PDGM
