ICD-9 Codes to ICD-10 Codes Training
Without specialized experts who know how to train medical billing personnel, your practice is at an increased risk of non-compliance and financial loss.
A successful practice needs to have a strong support team that understands how to use and implement the ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. As of October 1, 2015, the ICD-10 implementation means medical billing staff must be ICD-10 ready.
The differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes require your staff members be kept up-to-date with changes in policies and procedures when reporting and submitting any medical billings.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the recommended training for ICD-10 coding is:.
- 4 to 8 hours for IT staff members,
- 8 to 16 hours for medical billing staff, and
- 24 to 40 hours for medical billing coders.
At Dr.’s Billing & Collections Services, Inc., our highly skilled medical coding specialists will train select staff members in your practice on the latest medical coding practices and procedures. From patient registration and referrals to clinical documentation and medical billing, our training will keep you and your staff in compliance.
