Can't believe it's already Spring! Don't forget the CMS1500 paper claim forms have changed to accomodate ICD10 and become effective April 1, 2014.  Old claim forms will no longer be accepted after that date.

 

ICD10 implementation is still moving forward. Not only will you need to map your ICD9 codes to ICD10 codes, but you will have to change your existing superbill, learn how to document properly for ICD10, test your claims, and use the new CMS 1500 claim form mandated for April 1, 2014.  If you haven't already upgraded your Practice Management software, do it now.

 

PQRS HCPCS II Codes have changed again for 2014.  In addition, Group Measure reporting will only be allowed through a registry.  So don't forget to review the measures currently reported by your office, update them, add to them, and avoid future Medicare penalties.

 

The EHR incentive program has once again changed the Stage 1 and Stage 2 criteria. However, no matter which Stage you are attesting to, only 90 days will be required for the 2014 year.  If you are in your first year of attestation, you must start your 90 day period no later than July 1, 2014. Don't miss out, get started with an Electronic Health Record as soon as possible.

 

The good news is that we can offer solutions to help you achieve your goals!  We specialize in Practice Management, and Software Solutions for Practice Management & Electronic Health Records. For our Medisoft Practice Management Clients, ICD10 Ready - V19 Medisoft is now available.
