As part of our effort to track and help the industry respond to challenges associated with the move from ICD-9 to ICD-10, the HIMSS ICD-10 Task Force interviewed payers and clearinghouses regarding their specific experiences within the first 45 days of the ICD-10 transition. The results of these interviews are summarized below.
All participants in the survey encourage providers to continue monitoring their pended and denied claims status and tracking their reimbursement levels to quickly identify and respond to any negative spikes in activity. We plan to interview providers on their experiences with ICD-10 implementation. Those results will be posted in late December.
