Description Biography Continuing Education

Medicare Severity Diagnosis Related Groups (MS-DRGs) methodology will change, as it always does. But this time you’ll need to understand how these changes will impact your facility’s reimbursement. The benefit of this presentation is that it will prepare you for potential Case Mix Index (CMI) changes that may affect reimbursement, compliance, and quality metrics for your facility beginning October 1, 2018.

You’ll learn about the FY 2019 MS-DRG revisions due to code changes or to resolve current errors in the Version 35 Grouper. You’ll come to understand the rationale for the proposed changes, and the final rule’s acceptance/rejection of the proposed change. Most importantly, you learn how the resultant MS-DRG weight impacts of the revisions will allow you to prepare for CMI adjustments. Knowing all this important MS-DRG information will add to your stature as an accomplished coder.

Register now and be the first to know what you can expect in 2019.
