ICD-10 Watch monitored early feedback as the change went live. Some of the feedback was:
- Some payors are not accepting ICD-10’s yet because they are not ready or their systems are offline updating.
- Some physicians are estimating that an extra 60 to 80 minutes are needed for each 12 hour shift due to additional code look up.2
The ICD-10 transition may have be troublesome for some providers and payors, but our ICD-10 solution ReimbursementCodes can help smooth out any bumps by using our Drug Diagnosis Coding database. Drug Diagnosis Coding, or DDC, is our comprehensive ICD-10-CM database of clinical indications for FDA approved and compendia off-label sources for physician administered drugs. DDC is available as a subscription to ReimbursementCodes.com which is a website lookup tool, useful for providers, or as a data file that can seamlessly integrate into their claims adjudcation systems.
Join Randy Falkenrath on Wednesday, October 14th at 2 pm (EST) to learn more about post-ICD-10 implementation and how Drug Diagnosis Coding can help payors and providers leverage the hard work they’ve invested into reducing specialty drug trend.
