Home Health

The professionally certified and credentialed team at CHIM International will help maximize your revenue opportunity, eliminate costly coding errors, and shorten the time for claim submission.

Supporting Our Clients

To support quality and profitability for in-home health care, a Home Health Coding and OASIS Review must be accurate and timely to document the required information before claims are submitted. This process requires knowledge and experience, as well as an ongoing plan to monitor and adapt to changing requirements for payment and compliance in the home health industry.

ICD-10 Coding

Coding accuracy has always been essential for maximum reimbursement. Under Medicare’s complex new Patient Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), coding specificity is so integral to reimbursement, that errors can threaten an agency’s viability. Our team stays dedicated to accuracy – and our expertise shows up on your bottom line.

OASIS Review

Our experts can improve your clinical accuracy as well as your documentation compliance. When an OASIS is reviewed, its accuracy based on medical documentation, OASIS guidelines, and CMS rulings is scrutinized. Our certified team follows your pre-determined preference to either make changes or send you our recommendations for changes. A rationale is also provided to the clinician for acknowledgment and finalization.

Plan of Care Review

Our team makes sure the Plan of Care Review (POC) is defendable and compliant. Our clinically certified team will review all necessary documents and assist your agency’s staff in completing a Plan of Care that is fully compliant and defendable.

Our Credentials

All our services are performed by experienced home health and hospice professionals. Coding work is performed by our certified coders with several years of home health and hospice experience. Coding credentials include BCHH-C, HCS-H, HCS-O, HCS-D, CCS and CPC-H.

Our in-house training team regularly updates coders on the changing guidelines in the home health industry. This in turn results in updated coding processes to adapt to all changes.

We pride ourselves in having a separate audit team, built into the coding process, that specializes in comprehensive reviews.
