Step by Step is the Best Strategy
Still not sure how — or whether — to start your transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10? A recent survey by the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) indicates providers are not making the progress needed for their ICD-10 implementation. “Unless more providers move quickly forward with their implementation efforts, there will be significant disruption on Oct 1, 2014,” WEDI concluded. If you are not compliant with ICD-10 by Oct. 1, 2014, implementation date, your claims won’t get paid.
