The American Chiropractic Association has published a new infographic focused in ICD-10 myths.
The infographic, which can be viewed by clicking here, shares several myths, including:
- Doctors should not waste time on ICD-10 implementation.
- A bill, if passed, would allow for a transition period of "dual reporting," allowing organizations to bill both ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes after the Oct. 1, 2015, compliance date.
- A bill, if passed, would allow for a grace period of two years, eliminating the need for clinics to invest in training staff on ICD-10 since a provider will be able to use any ICD-10 code and get paid.
The infographic, and an accompanying article, which can be accessed here (pdf), provides the facts that dispel these myths.
To help chiropractors and other providers prepare for the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10, PGM Billing, a leading provider of chiropractic billing services, has recently launched two resources: an ICD-9 to ICD-10 conversion tool and an ICD-10 codes lookup tool. Bookmark these tools for easy access, and be sure to visit the PGM website regularly as we will be publishing many more resources leading up to October 1.
