CMS Offers Up Resources for Your ICD-10 Questions
The US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) says that it has "tested and retested our systems" designed to handle the ICD-10 codes that will begin on October 1, and wants health care providers to feel equally prepared for the transition.
But if you still have questions, they're offering resources that may provide answers.
A recent blog post from CMS ICD-10 Ombudsman Bill Rogers outlines 4 major areas of support that are available online. These include:
- General ICD-10 information at the CMS Road to 10 webpage
- Links to Medicare Administrative Contractors, which Rogers describes as "your first line for help for Medicare claims questions"
- Email contact information for the ICD-10 Coordination Center
- Contact information for the ICD-10 Ombudsman
In addition to the CMS resources, APTA offers an ICD-10 webpage that includes frequently-asked-questions, case scenarios, and a link to a popular (and free-to-members) recorded webinar on final steps toward implementation of the new system.
