The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has released a 29-minute video on estimating the impact of the transition to ICD-10 on Medicare inpatient hospital payments. In addition, the agency released a seven-minute video on Medicare’s testing plan for ICD-10. The Medicare Learning Network videos were recorded during a March 18 meeting of CMS’ ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee. Under a final rule issued last year, health care providers must begin including ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure codes on Medicare and other health care claims on Oct 1. AHA members can access an updated Executive Action Guide to help with the transition to ICD-10, and visit the CMS website for more information and resources.
