ICD-10 Diagnosis Codes
ICD-10 has finally made it! Providers should be using ICD-10 diagnosis codes for dates of service on or after 10/1/2015. Now that we have a few months of ICD-10 under our belt, MSF is seeing a significant number of bills with incomplete ICD-10 codes.
Going from 14,000 codes to 70,000 codes can be daunting, but having the complete code gives an accurate picture on what the injured worker is being treated for. There is also the trickle -down effect as this information is then required for other purposes such as reporting and data collection etc.
