  • Find Out if Your Workers’ Compensation Payers Will Switch to ICD-10

    While all entities covered by HIPAA must implement ICD-10 by October 1, entities not covered by HIPAA, such as workers’ compensation payers and their third party administrators, have the option to not implement ICD-10. In other words, some non-covered entities may not require that you submit claims using ICD-10 – and could even require that claims be submitted using ICD-9.

    So how are non-HIPAA covered entities going to handle claims?  

    If you treat workers' compensation patients and bill their insurers for medical services, now is the time to determine whether those payers will require claims to be submitted using ICD-10. Check with your most frequent payers of workers’ compensation claims, as well as their third party administrators, about any directives concerning code sets.
