Submit ICD-10 Problems to TMA’s Hassle Factor Log
Thursday, Oct. 1, was the mandatory date to switch to the ICD-10 coding system in the United States. The government’s paltry “grace period” notwithstanding, all claims to Medicare, Medicaid, commercial insurers, and other payers with a date of service on or after Oct. 1 must use ICD-10. If you run into problems submitting claims, email PaymentAdvocacy@texmed.org or send a report to TMA’s Hassle Factor Log. TMA staff will monitor the reports and contact health plans, Medicare, or Medicaid. If your practice is behind in its ICD-10 preparation, or if you’re just looking for some tips and tools to make the new system work more smoothly, see TMA’s ICD-10 Resource Center.
