ICD-10 medical coding
The ICD-10 implementation as expected has created across-the-board duress for physicians, payers, software vendors and any other provider of healthcare services requiring medical claims submissions. One method of overcoming this challenge to healthcare providers and facilities is to outsource their medical billing and collections as well as coding needs.
Apart from just the change in coding, the ICD-10 transition has also brought about huge challenges in A/R and Denial management. The percentage of denials has increase exponentially while the new system 'beds- in' between the provider generated coding and what the Payer systems can adjudicate. There are other challenges as well, that include updating the fee schedules to the new code sets and potentially an increase in the number of charge values corresponding to the increase in the number of codes in ICD-10. Though technology has played a major role in ensuring a smooth transition, there is a big manual effort involved as well.
