Kareo ICD-10 Resource CenterOK, no more excuses. With the passing of the new “doc fix” bill (without a delay to ICD-10 included) we are assured that the October 1, 2015 deadline is “on”.

 

If you are one of the practices that has waited to see what would happen, it is time to get started. You can’t wait any longer. There are less than six months left and lots to do to be sure that your practice can make the transition effectively and prevent or reduce any loss in productivity or revenue.

  1. Code mapping
  2. Documentation review and improvement
  3. Financial planning
  4. Training
  5. Testing
But first, you need to check in on your readiness level. Use this ICD-10 Assessment to determine your level of readiness and get your free ICD-10 Success Plan Checklist. Tweet this Kareo story
