Effective 9/2/2015, the functionality for manually setting a diagnosis to primary in HEO/CPOE is no longer supported. Please continue to use the F3 (Discharge Orders) function to set the discharge diagnosis for the encounter.
Medical necessity is one of the deciding factors used to determine whether a claim can be reimbursed or not. Currently ICD-9-CM (diagnosis) codes are used to communicate this information to a payer but beginning with dates of service on or after October 1, 2015, ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM. This new code set will allow more detail to be captured.
Please make sure you have accounted for the use of ICD-10 in authorizations, referrals, pre-certifications, requisitions and physicians’ orders. If you are scheduling your patients for diagnostic testing that will be done on or after October 1, 2015, please remember to include ICD-10 codes. Patients presenting for tests on or after October 1, 2015 will be delayed if ICD-10 codes are not available. If we do not have clear ICD-10 codes, we may need to contact your office. We would like to minimize disruption to your offices, so your effort to provide the correct information up front is appreciated.
Hopefully we can make the ICD-10 transition seamless to our patients, but it will take planning and forethought. We look forward to working together to address this massive change we are about to experience in our healthcare environment.
