Key Points About ICD-10
Here are a few facts to keep in mind in the wake of the implementation of ICD-10 as the required diagnosis code structure for medical claims.
- ICD-10 compliance is mandatory for all HIPAA covered entities.
- ICD-10 codes apply to dates of service beginning October 1, 2015. Health services and claims for dates of service through September 30, 2015 remain coded with ICD-9.
- ICD-9 codes cannot be reported with ICD-10 codes on the same claim.
- Denial rates may increase with ICD-10 resulting from miscoding or an incorrect level of specificity.
- Practice Insight offers a customer-specific ICD-10 Code Analysis Report that analyzes historical claims for diagnosis code usage and offers probable matches to ICD-10.
- The CMS GEM (General Equivalency Mapping) crosswalk is built-in to EDIinsightSM as a searchable resource.
- EDIinsightSM Clinical Claim Scrubber and EDIinsightSM ERA Denial Manager are two ICD-10-ready products Practice Insight offers that can help ease the transition.
