Impact of Coding Guidelines on DRGs August 17, 2017 The ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting and the AHA Coding Clinic instructions have different impacts on the MS-DRG and APR-DRG grouper logic as do the codebook instructional notes. The guidelines change over time and require careful monitoring for DRG impact and compliant code assignment. As part of an overall quality assurance plan to minimize coding errors and retrospective adjustments or denials, these guidelines should be tested for impact on reimbursement, coding, case mix, and monitored for proper use.

Medicare Advantage (HCC) Documentation: Connecting Clinical and Coding Concepts for Endocrine and Pulmonary Diseases July 20, 2017 Coders and CDI staff are looking at the same elephant but from different ends: one holding the trunk, the other holding the tail. Dr. Taylor is both a clinician and coder, and understands the whole documentation elephant and will explain the differences and how to reconcile them. The Medicare HCC model is based on diagnosis capture of what is documented in the chart, and clinical indicators are necessary to support the code.

Minimize the Confusion behind Reporting Infusions and Injections May 18, 2017 It can be confusing to determine the appropriate code(s) for infusion and injection services.  Even the basic terms, push/infusion/injection, may mean different things to the clinical staff and the coding staff.  Time based services are inherently challenging and require precise documentation to support that you’ve met or exceeded the ‘mid-point.’  When it is about the why something was done (medical necessity) more than what was done, documentation can even challenge veteran staff.
