We’re pleased to offer you the option of choosing our Home Health Level I or Level II services as described below.

SecureCoding:  Level I

Certified coders review all relevant patient information and documentation including the OASIS, 485, referral, clinical note and medication list. They select the correct physician verified diagnosis, apply correct ICD-10 codes, choose sequencing and suggest severity ratings when applicable for relevant M-Items including:

  • M1011: Inpatient Diagnosis
  • M1017: Diagnoses Changed
  • M1021, M1023: Diagnoses

We also review the M-item questions that affect your STAR rating.

SecureCoding Plus:  Level II

SecureCoding Plus encompasses all of the elements included in SecureCoding, plus a review of OASIS M-Items that impact your HHRG score. Certified staff review all relevant patient information and documentation including the OASIS, plan of care, referral, clinical note, and medication list. They select the correct physician verified diagnosis, apply correct ICD-10 codes, choose sequencing and suggest severity ratings when applicable for relevant M-Items. We will record our recommendations in the record, based on findings, and communicate these changes to the clinician within the EMR. The clinician makes the final decision on accepting those recommendations.

We reinforce OASIS accuracy by ensuring that select items in the record are supported by CMS guidance and coding conventions. We review these M-Items and the documentation so that it supports the diagnosis and the coding supports the OASIS.
