ICD-10 Migration and Episode Care

Chiropractic Medicare 2015
1.  ICD-10 Migration
2. Episode Care

1.  ICD-10 Migration
     On October 1, 2015 the ICD-9 Code sets used to report medical diagnosis and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets.  Those using certified software should be compatible with both ICD-9 and ICD-10. Your software company will provide tools to change over to ICD-10 and have the training for the provider to properly code.  If you have questions about your software being able to "Migrate to ICD-10" please call your software company TODAY.
     If you are not paperless, you may wish to print out the ICD-10 codes for your review.  It will print over 60 pages.  As you review, you will soon see very few of the ICD-10 codes will be used in your practice. Review the list and mark your codes.
     The problem for our profession is real. Somewhere around eleven thousand of the 60 thousand practicing Chiropractors became paperless and Medicare compliant.  For those not using certified software, be prepared for major delays in reimbursement by Medicare and insurance companies.  I strongly recommend having ALL your billing up-to-date prior to October 15th of this year.

2.  “Episode”
     Medicare carriers are now reviewing Chiropractic care by “Episode” units.  I have no problem with that. Our job in Medicare is NOT treating patient symptoms, but correcting vertebral subluxations.  As long as you practice like a Chiropractor in Medicare.....the fewer problems you will have. YOUR SUCCESS AND SECURITY IS UP TO YOU!    
     Be a Doctor of Chiropractic........Remember, always tell the truth!
