Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana is preparing vigilantly for the upcoming ICD-10 conversion changes that is slotted to take effect on October 1st, 2014, albeit delays and changes to the effective date may still occur.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana is preparing for the health care industry’s conversion to the 10th version of the International Classification of Diseases code set ICD-10. According to the HHS regulations, all HIPAA covered entities are required to use ICD-10 on all transactions, including claims, authorization and referral requests, and on all verifications of eligibility.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana plans to be fully compliant with ICD-10 requirements by the compliance date and continues to move forward with remediation efforts. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana is taking the necessary steps to ensure that all systems and processes will accommodate ICD-10 by the federal compliance date of October 1st, 2014, and all transactions must contain the ICD-10 format or they will be rejected.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana realizes that this conversion process will have its challenges for all impacted by the implementation of ICD-10 and offers this “checklist” for providers to prepare their offices now for the upcoming changes.

The first piece of advice that Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana can offer would be to identify places that your medical practice uses ICD codes today. Think about how diagnosis codes may be used in the background – identifying patients with a certain condition, analyzing trends, reporting to different departments, organizations or agencies.

The second item on the checklist that should be addressed is to talk with your medical coding software vendors and your billing services clearinghouse or practice management vendors. Discuss with them their plans for ICD-10 compliance and work with them to set target dates to begin your testing.

The next item to address is consider training needs for yourself and your staff. Clinicians, medical coders, as well as office staff that conduct eligibility verifications, pre-authorizations, billing and payment reconciliation, will need to understand differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 and how ICD-10 codes should be used.

Lastly on the list to check is to coordinate ICD-10 transition efforts with electronic medical record vendors, medical coding vendors, billing software vendors and internal information technology staff.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana believes that by working closely with providers, vendors and payors, everyone should be able to accomplish a successful transition to ICD-10.
