Challenging PDGM Coding Scenarios
Two of the five PDGM categories are directly linked to coding: Clinical Grouping and Comorbidity Adjustment. PDGM requires Home Health Agencies to ensure that a patient is appropriate to be admitted to Home Health by having an acceptable primary diagnosis.

  • What happens when the only diagnosis you have from the physician is an unaccepted diagnosis?
  • What if the clinical record doesn’t align with the primary diagnosis?
  • What about comorbidities?

During this session, through case study analyses, we will explore some of the issues that can arise with ICD-10 CM coding under PDGM. We will discuss action plans agencies can implement to manage these challenging coding issues.
