DHCS Posts Medi-Cal ICD-10 Implementation Billing Guide

DHCS last week posted an updated ICD-10 Implementation Billing Guide, including information for global obstetrical billing. The guide notes that providers billing based on a “from” date of service prior to Oct. 1, 2015, must use ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes. Claims with a “from” date of service on or after Oct. 1, 2015, must use ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes. More information is available on the DHCS website
