Q. How do I report ICD-10 codes on claims when the dates of service span from prior to 10/1/2015 to on or after 10/1/2015?
A. Many payers are requiring claims with dates of service that span the October 1, 2015 implementation date to be split so that the services prior to 10/1/2015 are billed separately and utilize ICD-9 codes; services on and after 10/1/2015 are billed separately and utilize ICD-10 codes.
Check specific payer guidelines for processing claims for services that span the 10/1/2015 ICD-10 transition date.
