ICD-10 Implementation in a 5010 Environment Follow-up National Provider Call

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) hosted a follow-up national provider education teleconference on "ICD-10 Implementation in a 5010 Environment." This teleconference focused on ICD-10 implementation issues, including proposals to partially freeze code updates and implementation updates for versions 5010 and D.0, including implemented readiness review, how 5010 updates impact ICD-10 implementation and advice for providers in moving toward 5010 implementation. Subject matter experts reviewed basic information on both ICD-10 and 5010 and explained how they are interrelated. A question and answer session followed the presentations.

Since this video was published, HHS has issued a rule finalizing October 1, 2015 as the new compliance date for health care providers, health plans, and health care clearinghouses to transition to ICD-10.
