In a Physicians Practice article, Lucien W. Roberts, a Virginia-based consultant, lays out six questions for providers to ask their clearinghouses as they prepare for the ICD-10 transition.


The six questions are:

1. Our practice suffered a disruption of cash flow during the 5010 transition. What will you do differently with ICD-10 to prevent a repeat performance?
2. Would you please run a report of claims rejections and denials by ICD-9 code?
3. Would you run a similar report by payer?
4. Could you please run a report that identifies the "generic" codes each provider uses regularly?
5. Could you share advice on mapping my superbill from ICD-9 to ICD-10?
6. Could you share the progress of your discussions with my practice management vendor and my payers? When can we start sending test claims?
