executive overview agenda
Executive Overview Agenda
  • Background
  • The Migration to 5010
  • The Migration to ICD-10
  • Impact on Physician Practices
  • Q & A
background
Background
  • Healthcare Providers must implement the new HIPAA 5010 Transaction Standards and must upgrade from ICD-9 to ICD-10 by the federally mandated deadlines:
    • 5010 – January 2012; ICD-10 – October 2013
    • Available diagnosis codes: 14K to over 68K
    • Procedure codes: Nearly 4K to over 72K
  • 5010 Impact: Updated HIPAA transaction standards for electronic exchange of administrative and financial information with Payers
  • ICD-0 Impact: IT remediation, updated policies and procedures, all clinical forms, coding, extensive education and training in all departments
  • Expected outcome: Cost effective & timely compliance
the migration to hipaa 5010
The Migration to HIPAA 5010

The existing standards are over six years old and enhancements are needed to address current issues.

  • Objectives of HIPAA 5010
    • Addresses shortcomings of 4010
    • Prerequisite for ICD-10
  • Key differences between 4010 and 5010
    • 800+ modifications to the HIPAA transaction sets
    • Primary technical changes including adds, changes, and deletes
the migration to icd 10
The Migration to ICD-10
  • The additional fields and characters used by the ICD-10 coding scheme enable greater detail and flexibility in describing diagnoses and procedures
  • Objectives of ICD-10
    • Provides richer detail regarding diagnoses and procedure codes
    • Greater ability to conduct research and innovation with broader code sets
    • Aligns the U.S. with the global community
  • Key differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10
    • ICD-10 codes are alphanumeric
    • The field length is longer – enables more codes
    • ICD-10 Codes150,000 versus 24,000 in ICD-9
      • Diagnostic Codes 13,000 to 68,000
      • Procedure Codes 11,000 to 87,000

Record Keeping Procedures

Fee Schedules

Medical Review Edits Applied by Health Plans

Quality Measures to Access Performance

“It is not difficult to determine where the impact of the coding process begins for providers. While the codes may not be documented until the claim for payment is filed, the documentation for determining the appropriate code starts as soon as the patient visit starts.” (p. 9)

slide13
Role of Documentation in the Conversion

“For documentation supporting diagnoses or procedures, physicians first must ensure that the services provided are consistent with the symptoms of the patient and that they satisfy generally accepted medical standards. Part of this effort requires that physicians understand and remain current on the relevant documentation standards. Physicians should strongly consider attending coding and documentation workshops on an annual basis to establish and to refresh their skills in documentation, and to master charging requirements.”

Super Bills

Will all Need to be Revised to Reflect New Way of Coding and the Additional Codes

Size: Approximately 5 Pages in Length – Practicality?

May Need Electronic Code Selection Software to Manage Paper Based and EHR-Enabled Practices

Paper Based practices may no longer be practical

Expect a Major Move to EHR-Based Practices Which Will Complicate the Transition and the Associated Costs
