Are you tired of attending webinars that address the updates to the inpatient prospective payment system that seem geared toward hospital executives rather than the coder? If so, then this webinar is for you! Our subject matter experts comb the final rule and extract information you, as a coder, want to know. From changes to the severity levels to changes in procedure OR and non-OR lists to updates to the Medicare Code Editor, this webinar will cover it all.
- Describe changes to MS-DRG major diagnostic categories
- List changes to MS-DRG severity levels
- Discuss changes to the Medicare Code Editor
- Identify procedures with changing OR or non-OR designation
