The FY 2020 Medicare IPPS Final Rule was issued August 2. With changes taking effect on October 1, it’s critical for coding, CDI and compliance professionals to know the ins and outs of the changes that impact compliance, financials and quality outcomes. 3M experts thoroughly review the final rule and provide education on the details so your team doesn’t have to.
Our expert analysis and the key takeaways are offered in a series of seven on-demand educational videos. The videos guide you through the new diagnosis and procedure codes, changes to the MS-DRG and 3M™ APR DRG classification systems and changes to the MCC and CC lists. This series also covers the revisions to the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting, as well as the latest quality updates.
The proposed rule outlined severity-level downgrades on almost 1,500 ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes that did not make it into the Final Rule. However, those proposals may be indicative of the direction that CMS is heading in the future, so we are exploring the possible effects of the proposed downgrades in our look at the financial impact.
Our goal with this educational series is to not only help you prepare for and implement changes for FY 2020, but also explore the impact of future changes for FY 2021 and beyond.
The FY 2020 Inpatient Policy Updates series includes over six hours of content delivered via seven high-end, user-friendly, on-demand educational videos from 3M experts. Plus, qualification for seven AHIMA continuing education units (CEUs).
The series will be available starting September 5th 2019, and new modules will be released throughout the month. Click the link below for pricing and registration. Early-bird pricing is open until September 15th.
