As the October 1, 2015 implementation date gets closer, GHCA, along with AHCA/NCAL, encourages long term and post-acute care providers to start now to educate and train staff; make the required software changes to submit accurate assessments or claims with ICD-10 CM code sets; and monitor any state Medicaid policy changes that may be required by ICD-10-CM code sets. Although CMS has provided numerous tools and resources for certain health care providers – – it has not very successfully provided tools for long term and post-acute care providers. GHCA has training planned; and AHCA/NCAL is currently planning its own series of webinars especially for our sector (mark your calendars for Dec. 5th and 11th), which will be advertised shortly.
