Medisoft Upgrade, What’s New in Medisoft 20
ICD-10 — CMS-1500 Claim Form Update
The U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) announced recently that Medicare will begin accepting a revised CMS-1500 claim form (version 02/12) on January 6, 2014, which you get with your Medisoft upgrade.
Embedded in this is a requirement for some healthcare IT vendors to start supporting a component of the International Classification of Diseases version 10 (ICD-10) earlier than the anticipated October 1, 2015 date, this is one of the top reason for Medisoft upgrade. The new paper form will allow Medisoft version 19 (v19) or (v20)to print up to 12 ICD-10 codes per claim.
Beginning on April 1, 2014, Medicare will only be accepting the updated version of the form. This revised form will give HIPAA-covered healthcare providers the ability to specify whether they are using the ICD-9 or ICD-10 diagnosis codes, which is important as the October 1, 2015, transition approaches. Effectively, any healthcare IT system that submits or reports on claims data that was scheduled to be ICD-10 compliant by October 1, 2015 must actually comply with a component of the ICD-10 requirements related to claims data as early as April 1, 2014.
