CWTC [Episode 25] Debility in IRF, IGC 17, and IRF Short Stay Coding - Make Your Revenue Smarter

Welcome to Coffee with the Coder®, our conversation with Paula Digby and her team to address issues, observations and questions for Health Information Management professionals. You are invited to listen in for ten minutes every other Monday and to submit your favorite questions or comments for Coffee with the Coder®

In today’s episode Paula Digby and Rucha Purohit answer three questions related to IRF (Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility). In the first, the question of whether “debility” should be the Etiologic Diagnosis for the IRF-PAI in a patient with multiple conditions.  In the second question, the correct usage of IGC 17 “Medically Complex” is considered; and in the final question, there is a concern of which codes to choose for a very short stay in an IRF.

Today’s winner of the official Coffee with the Coder® mug is Leeann from Florida!

The “mug shot” here is of our Social Media Specialist, Kristine.
