The long awaited day is here--and ICD-10 is a reality. Just a few reminders for claim/encounter submissions around the implementation date.
1) Claims/encounters cannot contain both ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. If you have dates of service before 10-1 and on or after 10-1, the services should be split onto separate claims.
2) If it is a hospital insurance claim/encounter, the "date of service" is the discharge date, and all services should be submitted with the coding system in effect on the discharge date.
3) Still need help? Check CMS' roadto10.org for more information.
4) Don't forget HCCUniversity.com. We have several presentations on ICD-10 that should help!
Good luck, and happy coding!!
