This 4-part webinar series will allow the learner to participate from their own location and will cover a full day of learning. Accurate coding under PDGM will require an increased skill set and knowledge of ICD-10 coding guidelines and conventions. Why gamble with coding and your reimbursement? Make sure your agency has a “full house” of coding experts. JLU will provide the training needed for your members to receive Advanced Coding Education and become an “ACE-10” in coding.


Staff will achieve confidence when coding by attending this specially designed, comprehensive class which covers all aspects of home health & hospice coding.  This year’s live webinar series will allow the coder to participate from their agency, saving time.   This course may also be utilized as a preparation course for any of the home health coding certifications (ACE, HCS-D, BCHH-C).


Who Should Attend:

This class is designed for anyone who would like advanced knowledge in coding and validation of their proficiency. Participants should have an experience with coding. Participants will be required to have a current ICD-10-CM manual to access for the webinars. Agencies need certified coders for accuracy with PDGM.
