ICD-10 is coming October 1, 2014
Will you be ready?
Starting October 1, 2014, every U.S. health care provider covered by HIPAA will be required to submit claims for reimbursement using the new ICD-10 diagnosis code sets.
This change will have major impacts on over 20,000 Vermont health professionals in 25 disciplines and every setting, including: hospitals, primary care & specialty practices, long term care facilities, home health agencies, mental health agencies, private practices, EMS agencies, etc.
We can help.
The Department of Health and the Department of Vermont Health Access are working with major insurance providers, and 25 professional associations and trade groups in Vermont to help you be prepared.
Assess your ICD-10 Readiness
We are working with your professional associations to assess the readiness of health care practices and organizations across Vermont. Summary data will be provided to each association and its members this fall.
Gauge your readiness for transition to ICD-10 coding, and register your interest in coordinated training for providers and billing/coding staff.
Training for Providers and Staff
The Office of Rural Health & Primary Care is working with partners to identify a ‘preferred provider’ to deliver a wide range of nationally certified ICD-10 trainings for coding staff, clinicians and others.
We are working to secure discounted rates for in-person, interactive and pre-recorded online training courses. Schedules will be posted here and by professional associations.
