So finally the ICD 10 is here!!! We have been hearing about it for so long, the time came and we are using ICD10 since October 1st 2015 I was freaking out as was being told that there will be delay in payments, finally start getting paid on October DOS. What a difference from 13000 codes to 68000.
Most of the billing software's had done the homework and had the crosswalk ready for us billers.
Please send me comments on your experience with any denials or rejections. Medicare has given some latitude for atleast one year for the payments as long as the diagnosis code is from the same family and I am hoping that all the other Insurances will do the same.
