Update on EGID ICD-10 Implementation
Posted 10/03/2013; Updated 04/09/2014
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 Oct.1, 2015, must use ICD-10 codes for medical diagnosis, inpatient procedures, outpatient services and any other service that requires a diagnosis code. Claims with service dates prior to Oct. 1, 2015, must use ICD-9 codes.
HP has adopted an Analyze-Build-Test approach implementing ICD-10 codes for EGID. Following is an implementation update:
With a few exceptions, HP has completed an end-to-end analysis of the system for ICD-10 impact and focused on completing an impact analysis for all reports through the end of 2013.
During this phase, HP has 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.
