Getting to 5010
The 5010 conversion requires significant changes to the information submitted on claims. If these modifications are not made, processing of claims could be delayed. To prepare for the 5010 conversion and avoid delays in reimbursement, it’s important that healthcare organizations take the steps necessary to assure compliance. MedAssets can help organizations identify needed updates and develop a plan for implementing these changes within their systems.

The Conversion to ICD-10: Benefits and Challenges
The transition to the ICD-10 coding standard provides significant opportunity to increase transaction efficiency and automation within the U.S. healthcare industry. ICD-10 code sets, which will replace ICD-9 code sets, include updated medical terminology and disease classifications that better reflect current medical practice. Moreover, ICD-10 code sets are more organized, detailed and clinically accurate than existing code sets. The structure of the new code sets also accommodates the addition of new codes in anticipation of future changes in healthcare.
The ICD-10 conversion, however, represents significant challenges to healthcare providers’ systems, processes and policies, including areas such as pricing contracts, benefits design, clinical coordination and care management programs.
