Impact of CMS/AMA July 6, 2015 Announcement on Medi-Cal
On July 6, 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA) made an announcement regarding joint efforts to help providers get ready for ICD-10 in addition to releasing some new FAQs related to Medicare claims. This announcement has resulted in questions regarding the impact to Medi-Cal.
At this time, DHCS is communicating with CMS to understand the impact of this announcement on state Medicaid programs. Once we have received additional information and guidance from CMS, DHCS will communicate this information to Medi-Cal providers and stakeholders through the Medi-Cal ICD-10 Web page.
