Libman Education Announces New Course on Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Coding

Helps IRF coders gain a clear understanding of IRF PPS guidelines and how ICD-10-CM coding conventions apply to the IRF setting
BEDFORD, Mass. - Oct. 1, 2020 - PRLog -- Libman Education has released "Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility: IRF-PAI and UB-04 Coding." This one hour, on-demand webinar is authored by Nirmala Sivakumar, CCS, CDIP, an experienced IRF coding educator.

While both the IRF-PAI and UB-04 forms are used by Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities to report ICD-10-CM codes, there are several key differences. This webinar will help the IRF coder gain a clear understanding of IRF PPS guidelines and how ICD-10-CM coding conventions apply to the IRF setting.

"Inpatient rehab coding has always presented a challenge for HIM coders -- even those with many years of coding experience.  Rehab-specific training will help coders to better grasp the nuances of IRF-PAI coding, aftercare codes, or sequelae codes for the etiology," said Nirmala Sivakumar CCS, CDIP, the webinar author. "It is essential that both coders and HIM managers understand IRF-PPS guidelines and the differences in the coding of the two documents, the IRF-PAI and the UB-04."

"Nirmala brings a wealth of knowledge and real-world experience to the coding of inpatient rehabilitation services," said Susan Pepple, President of Libman Education. "IRF coding is just the most recent example of Libman Education's continuing commitment to provide top quality education for the challenges facing today's coders."
