Let’s think outside of the box … away from the fear and confusion about ICD-10 for a moment.
Some consider ICD-10 to be the equivalent of the atomic bomb. On the contrary, it’s an essential evolution and (for some), one of the biggest opportunities to improve quality of care that will increase reimbursements in the process.
Yes, that’s right. When done correctly, ICD-10 will INCREASE revenue for physical therapy business practices.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
- The increased specificity and the granularity associated with ICD-10 opens up new financial opportunities for all private practice owners.
- ICD-10 codes opened new and unprecedented opportunities to communicate with patients in targeted, segmented ways like never before.
- ICD-10, when used correctly, can benefit your marketing efforts.
- Clinicians can transition to ICD-10 with a simple approach towards compliant documentation.
- There are several advantages to ICD-10 in a clinical setting, ranging from improved patient care to greater interoperability of information.
- Relying on the CMS GEMs translations can cause problems with documentation, billing and coding due to a lack of specificity.
- It’s crucial to assess the level of preparation of vendors (EMR, physical therapy billing software, clearing house, billing staff) to avoid payment disruptions.
- Understand and mitigate the impact of ICD-10 on payer contracts
- Create an inventory of, and prepare for changes in systems and software as you transition to ICD-10
