New ICD-10 Implementation Guide Available

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has produced the ICD-10 Implementation Billing Guide to assist providers in determining how to bill claims that cross over the Oct. 1 ICD-10 implementation date. DHCS advises that providers bill inpatient and long-term care claims with a “through” date on or after Oct. 1 with the appropriate ICD-10 codes. Outpatient claims with a “from” date on or after Oct. 1 should also be billed using the ICD-10 codes. The guide expands on the information provided in question 6 of the ICD-10 FAQs on the ICD-10 page of the Medi-Cal website.
