October 1st came and went with little excitement, just as iMAX Medical Billing anticipated. Most practices were still processing pre October 1st claims on that day. The real measuring stick will come in 30 to 45 days from now when the initial ICD-10 claims have been processed by the payers. We, at iMAX Medical Billing, aren’t holding our breath, just hoping that the claims will be processed. Our billing systems have a comprehensive crosswalk from ICD-9 to 10 making it very efficient for our practices to code. Even the ones that waited until the 11th hour to learn and prepare for the ICD-10 transition.
If your practice is having difficulties or uneasiness with the ICD-10 transition, feel free to reach out to iMAX Medical Billing and we can run through a billing check-up to see where you currently stand.
