A road map was developed to define SHPO’s implementation plan. The road map includes a timeline to complete business requirements, system design and development, internal and external testing, medical policy updates, communication initiatives, and training. Upgrades for ICD-10 have already started for a number of key systems impacted by ICD-10.
As a reminder, ICD-10 codes should not be submitted on claims prior to Oct. 1.
As you work on your own transition plans and training to prepare for ICD-10, you may access the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) ICD-10 implementation guide, which provides links to other useful tools and resources. Other useful resources include:
CMS Provider Resources (Including “Road to 10” migration tool)
AHIMA ICD-10 checklists and implementation toolkits
Oregon Health Plan ICD-10
