A new flyer and an infographic from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) offer key resources to help providers as they prepare for the transition to the diagnosis and procedure codes in the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition (ICD-10). Providers must begin listing ICD-10 codes on claims submitted to CMS with dates of service on or after Oct. 1. CMS has previously stated that it will not deny physician claims due to incorrect ICD-10 codes, as long as the code the provider lists on the claim belongs to the correct code family.
America’s Essential Hospitals has also compiled a list of resources to help members prepare for a seamless transition to ICD-10, including fact sheets, implementation guides, interactive guides, and more.
