CMS Encourages Home Care & Hospice Providers to Participate in Brief ICD-10 Survey
November 25, 2013 10:42 AM
On October 1, 2014, the health care industry will transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes for diagnoses and inpatient procedures, which is LESS THAN ONE YEAR AWAY.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has requested the assistance of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) in encouraging providers to take the necessary steps to ensure progress toward readiness and timely compliance with the new code set.
An important part of the transition is accurate assessment of where your organization is in relationship to readiness. CMS is also interested in leaning how they can best assist home health and hospice providers in preparing for the transition to the ICD-10.
CMS is seeking guidance on educational approaches that best target the needs of the industry. To gain better insight into these issues, NAHC is requesting that home health and hospice providers complete this BRIEF survey.
THANK YOU for your participation – it will go a long way toward informing future efforts to supply useful and convenient training to facilitate ICD-10 readiness.
