Course  Description:

This 4-part course series will allow the learner to participate from any location and will cover a one full day of learning.

Accurate coding under PDGM and Hospice will require an increased skill set and knowledge of ICD-10 coding guidelines and conventions.

Why gamble with coding and your reimbursement? Make sure your agency has a “full house” of coding experts. JLU will provide the training needed for your staff to receive Advanced Coding Education and become an "ACE-10” in coding. 

Staff will achieve confidence when coding by attending this specially designed, comprehensive course which covers all aspects of home health & hospice coding. 

This year’s live webinar series will allow staff to participate from anywhere!

This course may also be utilized as a preparation course for any of the home health coding certifications (ACE, HCS-D, BCHH-C).
