Effective Oct. 1, 2015, ICD-10 codes are have been mandated to replace ICD-9 codes, which are used by health care professionals to report diagnoses and procedures while payers use the codes to accurately pay for the related services and procedures.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 requires covered entities* comply with its standards when conducting certain electronic health care administrative transactions. These transactions include claims, remittance, eligibility, and claims status requests and responses. For Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) transactions, HIPAA requires use of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) technical content and format specifications as well as the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) coding system for medical diagnosis and inpatient procedures.
The implementation of the ICD-10 mandates is intended to improve patient care quality at lower costs, enhance claim processing with fewer errors, improve data reporting and promote increased interoperability across all industry stakeholders.
