The FY 2023 ICD-10-CM coding updates go into effect on Oct. 1, 2022. ICD-10-CM coding accuracy is required by HIPAA. The facility’s clinical team must ensure that diagnosis coding is accurately completed in each medical record. ICD-10-CM coding also impacts payment under PDPM. During this 60-minute webinar, AAPACN Master Teacher, Carol Maher, RN-BC, RAC-MTA, RAC-MT, CPC, will review each of the changes to the ICD-10-CM coding guidelines that impact long-term care, including changes to Dementia coding, long-term injectable non-insulin medication use, sepsis coding, HIV coding, and more. Carol will also cover recommendations that will assist facilities to understand the steps that need to be taken each Oct. 1 when the coding guidelines and ICD-10-CM codes are updated with additions, revisions, and/or deletions.

After participating in this session, learners will be able to:

  • Recognize the new code for mild Dementia in diseases classified elsewhere
  • Identify the one new item that can be coded when documented by a non-physician practitioner
  • Implement the change to coding related to insulin and oral anti-hypoglycemic medications
  • Understand three steps to take each Oct. 1 to ensure the resident ICD-10-CM codes are kept up to date
