Use Specific ICD10 Codes when Billing

By admin

Avoid denials for unspecified codes – Medicare and other commercial carriers have allowed a grace period of one year for non-specific ICD10 codes. That one year grace period ends October 1st, 2016. Make sure to use specific ICD10 codes when billing or documenting, especially if you are using ‘defaulted’ diagnosis codes in your billing system.
