Providers must continue to use the updated 02-12 version of the CMS 1500 form. Any rebilling of claims should use the updated CMS 1500 form (version 02-12), even if earlier submissions were submitted using the older form version.
Why should providers care about ICD-10 conversion?
ICDs are the International Classification of Disease, providing code description for every possible diagnosis, symptom, or cause of death. Developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), these codes are monitored in the United States by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
ICD-9 codes were adopted by the US in 1979; as we continue to overhaul our healthcare system, the adoption of ICD-10 will allow for better support for analysis, reporting, risk, and severity assessment. As such, the Federal government mandated complete ICD-10 compliance by October 1, 2014.
As ICD-10 codes encompass both diagnostic and procedural codes, changes to both the alpha-numeric composition of codes and procedural terminology associated with codes will occur with ICD-10 conversion.
