Issue Resolved for ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Codes for Cervical Abnormalities

May 1, 2018

A NewsFlash published on February 22, 2018, and in the March 2018 Family PACT Update titled “ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Codes for Cervical Abnormalities Erroneously Denied” informed providers that the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) identified a claims processing issue causing claims billed with ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes for cervical abnormalities to erroneously deny for the Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) Program. The claims processing issue has been resolved.

An Erroneous Payment Correction (EPC) will be issued to reprocess affected claims retroactive to August 1, 2016. No action is required of providers. Providers should continue to submit claims in a timely manner.
