The ICD-10 compliance date is October 1, 2015. Are you ready? The CMS Medicare Fee-For-Service Provider Resources web page includes information and educational resources for providers to implement and transition to ICD-10 medical coding.
Providers have a significant responsibility for the collection and maintenance of patient information. They must ask questions to secure employment and insurance information. They have a responsibility to identify payers other than Medicare so that incorrect billing and overpayments are minimized. To learn more, and to access the CMS Questionnaire to assist providers with this process, please refer to the CMS Provider Services Billing Responsibilities web page.
