As you get your practice ready for the ICD-10 changeover, you are bound to have questions regarding documentation and compliance. To help you get the answers you need, we have compiled all questions that were asked during our recent webinar â€œICD-10 | Five Building Blocks,â€ along with the presenter’s responses. Feel free to add any new questions in the comment section below.
Q: Where can I find CMS guidelines in written form?
A: On CMS.gov, click on the Medicare link and you will find a link for both local and national coverage determinations.
Q: When can I start finding ICD-10 codes within your software and submitting them?
A: Our software already has all the ICD-10 codes listed; we are building the crosswalk now. We recently completed ICD-10 testing with Medicare, and were successful with our front-end edits. We are looking to have this available to practices by June, to really start testing and crosswalking. At this point, payers are not accepting claims in ICD-10; they are not coming over until October 1, but we are testing with payers and clearinghouses directly.
