ICD-10

Physicians & Practice Managers

October 1, 2014 Is Just Around The Corner

Last year the Federal Government delayed the long anticipated introduction of new ICD-10 billing codes; providers and payers just weren’t ready...

The new date for ICD-10 is October 1, 2014. This time there’ll be no extension...

ICD-10 increases requirements for provider documentation, and includes over 123,000 new billing codes...

They place rigorous limitations on payment practices...

Many payers are not going to test their capabilities to process ICD-10 codes, they will simply “go live” and hope for the best...

Countries who have successfully adopted ICD-10 report a 50% increase in days in A/R and a 50% reduction in billing staff productivity...

Extensive provider education and ongoing collaboration with certified professional coders (CPC's) is critical to making this transition.

So...is your staff ready? Have they “been to a class”? Will they be able to sort through all of the issues that are inevitable with the implementation of ICD-10?
