Help your team prepare with the only ICD-10-CM certificate program developed specifically for SNF interdisciplinary team members. In just four 90-minute virtual workshop sessions, your team will gain the know-how to determine and identify the most appropriate ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes for accurate reimbursement.
