ICD-10 Transition Checklist Now Available
Providers are encouraged to read the new International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision (ICD-10) code transition checklist available on the HIPAA: ICD-10 page of the Medi-Cal website. The checklist provides a timeline outlining the actions providers and/or submitters should be taking until the 2014 implementation date so they are ready for ICD-10 implementation. Failure to comply with ICD-10 by October 1, 2014, may result in delayed claim reimbursement.
Medi-Cal also invites providers to take the ICD-10 Provider Readiness Survey. Please check the Medi-Cal website often for updates regarding ICD-10.
