CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 7/20/07
As we discussed last week, providers must be prepared towards the end of each calendar year to adopt significant changes in coding, reimbursement, and other compliance requirements. Last week, we previewed the changes that will occur January 1, 2008, concerning procedure codes for clinical laboratory tests. This week, we will preview the changes scheduled for October 1, 2007, for diagnosis codes (ICD-9 codes). As is customary, a large number of ICD-9 codes will be revised, added, or deleted on October 1. Providers must pay attention to these changes because they are numerous, and will affect several NCDs and LCDs that govern commonly ordered tests and procedures. As always please feel free to email us any questions, comments, and/or suggestions for future CodeMap Compliance Briefings.
