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
MaineCare encourages you to take five to ten minutes to complete the second ICD-10 Provider Readiness Survey. We distributed the first survey in April. As a reminder, we are distributing this survey on an ongoing basis in order to understand the provider community's readiness for ICD-10. We would like you to respond to the survey each time it is distributed so that we can monitor the progress toward meeting the federal compliance date of October 1, 2014. However, we encourage you to participate in this survey regardless of whether you participated in April.
Your response will help us:
- Better understand provider readiness for the ICD-10 transition and how we can help
- Determine the most effective methods for communicating with you and sharing information about ICD-10
- Identify potential providers for partner testing
- Identify providers who may have difficulty meeting the compliance date
Please answer the questions based on your organization's level of preparation for ICD-10. 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.
