Ask & Code: Documenting Homelessness Throughout the Health Care System

A National Health Care for the Homeless Council Webinar

0 16607
This webinar complements our recent policy brief and will discuss how the ICD-10-CM code for homelessness (Z59.0) has been implemented at a Health Care for the Homeless grantee in Colorado, and how a hospital system has instituted a housing status screening tool in Pennsylvania. Finally, we’ll hear from a leading managed care entity about why Medicaid plans need to have this information and see preliminary results from a pilot project in Texas using the Z59.0 code to identify homelessness among Medicaid beneficiaries.
