Yes.  We are the best man team you will ever need to help you tide through most important change in your practice – ICD10 Implementation. Now, that’s a loud and proud claim and we will justify it soon. Stay with us.

Should You Outsource For ICD10 Implementation?

Its answer depends on your readiness as a practice to handle all the changes that come with ICD 10 implementation. Close to our heels, effective October1, 2015, it’s high time to understand and review the impact of ICD 10 implementation. If you are a small or medium-sized practice and not prepared adequately to take of your billing & implement the ICD10, your practice could face major revenue hit. Since no ICD9 codes will be acceptable for services rendered by practices/physicians after September 30, 2015, the time is NOW to take stock of the situation.

Let’s start by checking off the following questions to see your readiness for ICD10 Implementation:

  1. Can your office staff handle the increased work load?
    1. There will be claim denials, correct & specific coding required, and many other checks will increase the work load of your in-house billing staff. 
    2. Revising any policy or procedure
    3. Coordinating with many touch points
    4. Handle work flow changes
  1. Are you all the staff members/touch points in your practice trained in new ICD 10 coding and transition requirements?
    1. Physicians, nurses, billing and support staff - everyone will need varying degree of training on the changes getting implemented and course of action to take if issues arise.
  1. Ae you prepared to deal with predicted challenges of new ICD10 Implementation, affecting your practice’s cash flow?
    1. Increase in A/R Days
    2. Increase In Claim Errors
    3. Rise In Claim Denial Rates
  1. If you plan to hire a new member for ICD10 Implementation, does it make financial sense?
    1. Outsourcing will probably be a fraction of the cost as compared to hiring a dedicated manager for ICD10 implementation.

If your answer is less than 100% sure in any of the above areas, then you should consider outsourcing medical billing to a vendor who is ready with upgrades to manage ICD10 Implementation flawlessly.
