The 2020 IPPS proposed rule has indicated many procedure deletions, as well as additions to the procedure classification system. How will those changes impact your facility? Is there anything that can be done regarding the deletion of codes due to clinical inappropriateness? Will these additions impact your coders?
Additionally, after analyzing three years of ICD-10-PCS data, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) suggested changes for the designation of Operation Room (OR) procedure. These changes will impact the MS-DRG assignment. Your facility must be prepared with information regarding which procedures have an OR procedure designation change including a switch from OR procedure to non-OR procedure or non-OR procedure to OR procedure.
What are the steps that you can take to prepare for FY2020 with regards to procedure data? Do you have plans for education of physicians? Clinical documentation integrity professionals? Inpatient coders? It is important to take the time to prepare now rather than October 1, 2019.
