CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: October 1, 2021
CMS annually updates the current diagnosis code set, required by HIPAA, on October 1 of each year. As Jerry Tavolino explains below, this update will require all providers to pay close attention to the ICD-10 codes included in their billing, claims submissions, and other information systems to ensure compliance with Medicare coverage policies, HIPAA standardized code-set requirements, and numerous other provisions included in applicable Medicare manuals. As always, please forward any comments, suggestions, and/or questions to us via email.
