ICD-10 Code Implementation
HP Administrative Services, LLC (HP) has a detailed timeline for the implementation of ICD-10 codes by the Oct. 1, 2015 compliance date. Claims for services provided on or after this date must use ICD-10 codes for medical diagnosis, inpatient procedures, outpatient services and any other services that require diagnosis codes. Claims with service dates prior to Oct. 1, 2015 must use ICD-9 codes.
HP has adopted an Analyze-Build-Test approach to implementing ICD-10 Codes for EGID. Following is an implementation update:
During this phase, HP loaded a test region with the ICD-10 Code set and configured it using CMS General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) recommendations. This phase is repeating with updates made on a rolling basis to achieve expected testing outcomes.
This phase includes internal testing of configuration changes and local changes, as well as end-to-end testing by HP. External testing follows internal testing and includes participation by EGID providers, third parties and vendors.
The Implementation Phase is under construction at this time.
