ICD-10 Implementation Billing Guide Update

October 16, 2015

The ICD-10 Implementation Billing Guide has been updated to include the following information for global obstetrical billing:

Providers who bill obstetrical services on a global basis will use the FROM date of service to determine the ICD code set used when billing. Claims with a FROM date of service prior to October 1, 2015, must use ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes. Claims with a FROM date of service on or after October 1, 2015, must use ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes.

The ICD-10 Implementation Billing Guide can be downloaded from the ICD-10 page of the Medi-Cal website.
