AHCA’s Online Trainings Deliver the SNF ICD-10 Coding Knowledge You Need

Dave Kyllo

AHCA and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) offer two online in-depth ICD-10 trainings and two new 2.5-hour update trainings for staff with ICD-10 coding experience/knowledge.  

The Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) relies on rapid and accurate patient assessment and diagnosis, and on MDS and ICD-10 coding to determine payments for each SNF patient. Incorrect or insufficient coding can significantly impact the payment rate for each patient.  

More than 40,000 ICD-10 codes can be used to report the primary reason for a SNF stay on the PDPM MDS assessment. Building ICD-10 coding proficiency and capacity are essential to ensure proper reimbursement for needed care and services.  

The 2020 ICD-10 trainings are:
  • AHCA/AHIMA ICD-10 Training for PDPM – Full Length Coding and Documentation Training 16 CNEs for nurses or 16 AHIMA CEUs for Health Information Management (HIM) professionals upon completion.   Intended for New SNF Staff (or staff interested in a full re-fresher) with Responsibilities for MDS and Billing.   $499 AHCA Member | $599 Non-Member
