Think you’re ready, but need a baseline? Check out these common testing errors:
• ICD-10 codes submitted with ICD-9 qualifiers and vice versa
• No ICD-10 codes submitted in file
• Claims were not coded to the proper specificity
• Age/gender not valid for diagnosis code submitted
• ICD-10 and ICD-9 codes on the same claim
• Workers’ compensation is considered a “non-covered entity” by CMS and not required to comply with the ICD-10 mandate. Some states, however, will require ICD-10. Availity will accept both ICD-9 and ICD-10 for DOS/dates of discharge on and after October 1, 2015. Additionally, providers should reach out to their workers’ compensation payers and clarify when ICD-10 codes are required.
