ICD-10 IS HERE!
ICD-10 is arriving tomorrow and although the majority of payers are prepared, we are prepping for any and all circumstances and working tirelessly to make the transition as smooth and seamless as possible. We have no doubts about how to get the job done and hope that all of our providers will come to us for any questions or concerns they may have.
ICD-10 has been a major concern for some of our providers as I'm sure they are for many physicians. We understand that you are worried about not being able to use paper fee tickets, that it will be more time consuming, and that all of your memorized codes are gone and all of your diagnoses are brand new codes.
We are so proud of our staff and our providers for using the education we've provided to them. The transparency between the offices and our staff has been encouraging and beneficial. Although anxiety still might be looming about ICD-10, we are the gladiators that will fight this battle with all our providers armed with the knowledge that we know exactly what we are doing and how to achieve our goals together.
1 day and counting...
