    In collaboration with the Connecticut Association for Healthcare at Home

    Final Rule CY 2022 made significant changes to the PDGM Comorbidity Adjustment Subgroups.  The increase of subgroups under the low adjustment has increased from 13 to 30 subgroups (57% increase) and the high comorbidity adjustment interactions increased from 31 to 87 subgroups (64% increase).   What does this mean for coding?  It means that many more codes could yield payment adjustments and coding needs to be accurate to receive appropriate reimbursement and avoid upcoding. 

    Be there to listen to practical advice and exercise your coding skills with Test Your Knowledge cases highlighting the changes.

    Program Objectives:

           * Changing from 31 to 87 code group interactions
           * Review of common interactions which increase payment

             behavioral health with neuro or skin; circulatory diagnoses with skin,
             neuro musculoskeletal; more interactions endocrine diagnoses: New

    Findings from a Statewide Survey

    Join Dr. Chanee Fabius from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health who will present her findings from a statewide survey of Maryland-based residential service agency administrators conducted between February and June 2021. Findings will include information about agency characteristics, challenges and supports related to caring for people with dementia, and experiences related to navigating the COVID-19 pandemic.

    About the Speaker

    Dr. Chanee Fabius is a gerontologist and health services researcher whose interests are informed by prior care management experience, where she worked with families to help older adults remain at home and delay the need for nursing home care. She is interested in: (1) better understanding networks of care used by older people and how those may vary by race and socioeconomic status, (2) examining the effect of community-based LTSS utilization on quality of life and health service utilization across diverse groups of older adults, and (3) strengthening the direct care workforce that provides services and supports to vulnerable older adults. She completed a two-year AHRQ-funded T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Research at the Brown School of Public Health in 2018. She earned her PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Connecticut in 2016.

    Although MNCHA was excited about a face-to-face meeting in fall 2021, the safety of our members, sponsors, and patients, took precedence. Out of an abundance of caution, we made the difficult decision to postpone the Annual Meeting scheduled for October 20, 2021.

    The MNCHA Board is now pleased to announce that we are able to offer this rescheduled fully in-person program for Tuesday, May 3, 2022. We hope that you will join us when we reconvene live for professional development, learning and networking among colleagues and friends. Read on to learn more about our program and sponsors!
