On Oct. 1, 2015, physicians were required to start reporting patient diagnoses and submitting claims using the ICD-10 code set. Physician practices, hospitals, Medicare, Medicaid, private payers, and clearinghouses also will need to use this new code set.

Failure to do so will result in significant financial disruption because claims filed using ICD-9 after Oct. 1 will be denied as unprocessable due to invalid codes. CMS, however, announced that for 12 months following the Oct. 1, 2015, implementation deadline, Medicare claims will not be denied if providers use the wrong ICD-10 code, as long as the code is in the right category. Learn more about CMS' flexibility policy.
