Welcome LTC HIM 

ICD-10-CM for Long Term Care Communities

We offer a TWO DAY seminar on ICD-10-CM coding tailored to skilled nursing facilities.  

Beginning October 1st 2019, the Medicare Part A reimbursement (PDPM) will depend on the ICD-10-CM Code entered on the MDS.  ICD-10-CM codes must be chosen according to the Official ICD-10-CM Coding Guidelines.

ICD-10-CM Codes are also used for:

1)  MDS submissions for all residents according to the RAI Manual instructions;

2)  Medication and treatment orders for clinical indications and/or diagnoses;

3)  Therapy orders and evaluations which show conditions being treated and billed; and

4)  Claims for reimbursement of services provided.   


This course covers ICD-10-CM coding for skilled and non-skilled long term care staff.  We include many coding practice examples and scenarios to ensure that attendees understand ICD-10-CM Official Coding Guidelines and principles. Each attendee receives an ICD-10-CM Coding workbook with the presentation; coding examples and answers; and a resource section with additional coding reference information. 

Now is the time to ensure that the person(s) responsible for selecting ICD-10-CM Codes are properly trained.  If your organization does not have a trained ICD-10-CM coder, we can help! 

Our current class availability can be found on our events page.  Contact us for information and/or to schedule a training for your long term care community(s) at contactus@ltcresource.net

Target Audience:  HIM, MDS, Business Office, Therapists, Case Managers, DONs and other staff or assistants who use ICD-10-CM Codes or need to understand ICD-10-CM codes for PDPM.
