Wondering how the shift to ICD-10 may affect Medisoft and your practice?
Transition costs can be high, and with five times more diagnostic codes than ICD-9, adopting ICD-10 will present challenges for most ambulatory practices.
The October 1, 2015 deadline for is coming fast, many items need to be addressed, such as clearinghouse communications changes, EDI setup, EMR template customizations, and hardware upgrades. Additionally, the new CMS-1500 claim form (version 02/12), modified by the National Uniform Claim Committee (NUCC), became mandatory on April 1, 2015.
After this date, Medicare will only process claims on the revised form, and only the newest version of the software, Medisoft v19 or higher, is capable of producing the new form, which can include up to 12 diagnosis codes and differentiate between ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. Older versions of the software will not be able to generate this form.
