Condition / Occurrence Codes

If you have questions about which condition or occurrence codes to use, please call the payer to ask. Barnestorm does not have this information.

D7 and/or D9 goes on the Medicaid payer extra billing info when the patient also has Medicare, but is not homebound; and Medicare is either d/c or was never used for that admission.

Condition code D7 can be used to override Medicare Part A, and condition code D9 can be used to override Medicare Part B when the services provided are noncovered or the services do not meet Medicare criteria.

If the patient has Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B, include both condition codes in the extra billing info tab, under the Medicaid payer.

For the new occurrence codes related to PDGM, you do not have to manually enter these codes.  These codes will be entered by the system, based on the information below:

Occurrence Code 61 and Occurrence Code 62
  • Make sure the staff is using the Patient Facility History and correctly classifying the facility.  This information will be used to create the Occurrence Code 61 (Acute Care Hospital stay) or 62 (SNF, IRF, LTCH, IPF facility stay) - even though these will ultimately be determined by the Medicare claims processing system itself, once the claims from the other facilities have been processed.  The main effect will be the $amount assigned to the episode when the RAP is created, so that revenue projections will be as real as possible.
Occurrence Code 50
  • Occurrence Code 50 will be added with the M0090 date of the OASIS.
