A few weeks ago, I spoke with the editor of ICD-10 Watch about how the transition to the new HIPAA 5010 electronic transaction standard went. Since the 5010 compliance deadline earlier this month, healthcare payers have had to learn to manage and respond to unexpected problems with medical claim rejections and denials. We discussed some of the specific problems that may be causing issues for practices, as well as the importance of tracking claims to ensure the reimbursement that practices receive is what they anticipated.
After our discussion, the editor wrote an article that summarized our discussion and the most common 5010-related problems practices are experiencing, along with the correction to these problems. You can read the full article here to learn more.
