On October 1, 2014, the ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets. ICD-10 will affect coding for all entities covered by HIPAA. For more information, see the CMS ICD-10 website.
MaineCare ICD-10 Provider Readiness Survey
The MaineCare ICD-10 Provider Readiness Survey will help us gauge the readiness of providers for the ICD-10 transition, as well as monitor progress towards meeting the federal compliance date. In addition, we will use the results of this survey to identify potential providers for partner testing and those providers who may have difficulty meeting the compliance date. This survey will be distributed to all MaineCare providers on a quarterly basis via an online survey tool. We would like you to respond to this survey each quarter to track your progress.
We know your time is valuable so we have designed the survey to be completed in approximately five to ten minutes. Please answer the following questions based on your organization’s level of preparation for ICD-10. To access the survey, please click here. Thank you in advance for your time and participation!
March 2013 ICD-10 Project Update
The ICD-10 project is progressing as MaineCare prepares for the transition to ICD-10. Beginning in April, we will distribute a quarterly ICD-10 Provider Readiness Survey to all MaineCare providers. The purpose of the survey is to gauge providers’ preparedness for the transition to ICD-10, as well as monitor progress to achieving compliance. Additionally, MaineCare has been communicating regularly with vendors and will be receiving periodic status updates from them for the duration of the ICD-10 transition.
The MaineCare ICD-10 webpage has recently been updated and we will continuously refresh it as news and updates become available and the project moves forward. A new ICD-10 email box has also been created specifically for your ICD-10 questions.
