IRF: UDSMR® IRF PPS Proficiency Check: ICD - 10 Coding

This webinar allows participants to validate what they know about coding the IRF PAI and the UB-04 claim form in order to accurately reflect each patient’s medical conditions and functional deficits. Prior to the webinar, attendees will complete an assessment consisting of twenty proficiency questions that target specific IRF PPS and ICD-10-CM coding guidelines and concepts. These coding scenarios will cover assigning etiologic diagnoses, comorbid conditions, and complications on the IRF PAI, as well as the principal and secondary diagnoses on the UB-04. Participants will receive feedback immediately after they submit their responses during the prewebinar assessment and will be able to submit questions later for inclusion in the webinar. The live presentation will include a review of the rationales for the correct answers to the proficiency questions, based on IRF PPS coding guidelines, ICD-10 coding guidelines, and relevant CMS resources.
