Healthcare organizations face new set of ICD-10 challenges

Aug 19, 2016, 18:14 PM

While last year’s ICD-10 transition went smoothly and with very few hiccups, healthcare organizations do not have the luxury of resting on their laurels. October 1 marks the one-year anniversary of the code switchover, which brings new challenges they must overcome.

Jim Daley, director of IT for BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and past chairman of the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange as well as WEDI’s ICD-10 co-chair, credits the success of organizations in meeting the Oct. 1, 2015, implementation deadline to the fact the industry had a lot of time to prepare.

One year later, Daley contends that organizations must now focus on three significant changes that will come into play starting Oct. 1, 2016:

  • The ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee has lifted the partial code freeze and thousands of new codes have been added for federal Fiscal Year 2017, which begins October 1.
  • The Medicare grace period on code specificity for Part B post payment audits will end Oct. 1, 2016.
  • Payers may begin to adjust medical policies based on the new specificity offered by ICD-10.
