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.
