ICD-10 & 5010
ICD-10 will be one of the biggest challenges the healthcare industry has ever faced. The new code set is nearly ten times larger than its predecessor ICD-9. That coupled with the reality that many providers have not successfully upgraded to the ASC X12 5010 HIPAA mandate—which is required for submitting claims under ICD-10—has many calling the situation a major crisis. If your organization is not adequately prepared, you will face major disruptions to your business.
