NAHC Sends Letter To CMS Highlighting ICD-10 Concerns & Recommendations

Posted on Friday, June 26, 2015 9:08 AM

NAHC recently sent a letter to CMS highlighting some unique issues home health agencies will face with the transition to ICD-10. The letter highlights concerns expressed by the home health care community regarding the transition. In order to address these concerns, NAHC recommends that CMS should do the following:

  • Provide a grace period sufficient enough for agencies to increase proficiency in ICD-10 coding;
  • Provide education programs and resources aimed specifically towards home health providers;
  • Conduct end-to-end testing exclusively for home health agencies; and
  • Ensure home health referrals from providers and physicians include complete documentation.
