ICD-10 Status Update

April 23, 2013

The ICD-10 project continues to progress through the Analysis and Design phase. Codes currently used to administer the MaineCare program have been mapped from ICD-9 to ICD-10. We have recently completed analysis of these ICD-10 codes to determine internal operational equivalence. Any changes in policies will be communicated at a later date.

Providers can send questions to the ICD-10 Provider Readiness Survey was distributed in the first week of April, and will remain open for the next couple of weeks. The survey will be sent quarterly moving forward and survey results will be posted on the ICD-10 webpage once they are compiled.

Billing instructions, Health PAS Portal User Guides, and companion guides are being analyzed based on ICD-10 changes and results of ICD-10 code analysis.

We are coordinating with vendors on reporting logic or reporting environments that use ICD-9 codes. We are in the process of developing a testing plan that includes multiple scenarios and provider types. For more information visit the ICD-10 webpage.
