ICD-10-CM Coding for Home Health, Beginner Level

All participants must bring a coding manual!

Learning Outcomes:

1. Identify one coding conventions and guidelines
2. State one chapter-specific guideline for coding Infections, Neoplasms, Diabetes, Circulatory and Respiratory conditions
3. State one chapter-specific guideline for coding injuries and complications
4. Describe how to identify the primary diagnosis for home health coding


This one day program or webinar series introduction to home health diagnosis coding provides an overview of the ICD-10-CM Coding Conventions and Guidelines to lay the foundation for the beginning coder. Next, Lisa discusses the selection of primary and other secondary diagnoses for home health, including the impact of the Conditions of Participation, OASIS rules and PDGM. The chapter-specific guidelines are presented for common home health conditions, including infections, neoplasms, diabetes, circulatory, neurological and respiratory diagnoses, as well as common injuries and complications. As Lisa explains the guidance, she presents examples and practice scenarios to ensure understanding.

All participants must bring a coding manual!

Coding professionals (or those looking to be coding professionals) looking to achieve proficiency in this system will find that this dynamic program provides a well-rounded knowledge base to every chapter in ICD-10-CM – you’ll get a great foundation in ICD-10-CM coding and its implications in home health practice. ICD-10-CM accuracy is essential for survival in home care, especially with a new payment system, even more dependent on diagnosis codes, than the current PPS. ICD-10-CM is not for the weak and weary. There are lots of rules and the successful coder needs to know which rule to apply in each situation.

This program is for persons wanting to learn how to apply ICD-10 guidance to homecare and hospice claims correctly and accurately.  We will start with an introduction into the ICD-10-CM code set with ICD-10 conventions and sequencing guidelines. Attendees will have plenty of practice accessing the index in finding the codes, noting tabular list instructions, and then on to coding simple, common home health scenarios. The name of the game is learning and applying the rules and regulations for assigning diagnosis codes to an OASIS or hospice Plan of Care/claim.

Attendees will leave with a good foundation of the rules and an awareness of the need to improve documentation at intake and query physicians for more descriptive information, in addition to the ability to code simple cases using chapter-specific guidelines.


Continuing Education: Attendance for the entire program is required to earn Contact Hours.

A copy of the completed Continuing Education Certificate must also be submitted. This program will provide contact hours to RNs, LPNs for 6.5 CEUs

You MUST have a Current 2020 or 2021 ICD-10-CM Coding Manual for this Virtual WorkshopThe most current version of ICD-10-CM coding manual is available through Selman-Holman at https://selmanholmanassociateswebstore.mybigcommerce.com/2020-complete-home-health-icd-10-cm-diagnosis-coding-manual (follow the links to the bookstore; discount provided in cart) or by calling 214-550-1477 ext. 7 to ensure you receive the 2021 version.

This class is designed with BEGINNER coders in mind. We recommend a review of theICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting for 2020, pages 1 -20 of the document found at https://ahcc.decisionhealth.com/media/1241/icd-10-cm-guidelines-ahcc-2020.pdf prior to the workshop. These pages describe and define the Coding Conventions (Section I.A) & General Coding Guidelines (Section I.B).It is expected that intermediate coders already possess this foundational knowledge as it will not be the focus of this class.Your pre-class efforts will greatly enhance your learning.

All participants must bring a coding manual!
