6 Questions to Ask Billing Services About ICD-10

Healthcare providers will need to prepare for the inclusion of ICD-10 codes after Oct. 1, 2014 and should work to not be delayed by third-party billing services, according to PhysBizTech.

Here are six questions officials with The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommend asking clearinghouses or billing services.

•    Are you prepared to meet the ICD-10 deadline of Oct. 1, 2014?
•    Where is your organization in the transition process?
•    Who will be my primary contact at your organization for the ICD-10 transition?
•    What are your plans for testing claims containing ICD-10 codes? How will you involve your clients, such as my practice, in that process?
•    Do you anticipate any pricing changes for your services due to the switch to ICD-10?
•    Can you verify that you have updated your system to Version 5010 standards for electronic transactions?
