In order to prepare for the transition to ICD-10-CM, it is important that healthcare providers focus on reviewing patient medical records for accurate coding. Incorrect or general coding could lead to nonpayment or reduced payment for healthcare providers and result in unnecessary out-of-pocket expenses for patients. Taking the initiative to improve clinical documentation now can help make the transition to ICD-10-CM easier for healthcare providers, coding staff and patients.
Humana encourages all healthcare providers to continue to work toward compliance with ICD-10. Healthcare providers who create a thorough ICD-10 implementation strategy and begin planning early can expect a smoother transition.
