Home healthcare includes a wide range of services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health is usually less expensive, more convenient and just as effective as the care that you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF).
At 3Gen, we code for the complicated illnesses, which includes Comprehensive review of OASIS and 485/Plan of Care. Our team recommends / amends OASIS (M-Items) based on the review of medical documents & assessments in conjunction with the compliance along with a focus on Star M-Items. The Levels can be separated based on number of M-Items reviewed.
This level includes coding for Start of Care (SOC), Resumption of Care (ROC), Recertification (REC) and Significant Change in Condition (SCIC). It requires review of Star M-Items such as 0102/0104, 1400, 1830, etc.
Along with Level 1 processing, additional M-Items such as 1028, 1308, 1350 and all M-Items related to wounds, Activities of Daily Living (ADL) & Medications are reviewed and corrected.
This level includes coding the OASIS (M1011/17 and M1021/23) as well as comprehensive OASIS review, which includes all M-items along with changes and recommendations made to the agency for rectification in compliance with CMS guidelines.
