Are You Prepared for ICD-10?

Beginning on October 1, 2015, you will need to transition from ICD-9 to the ICD-10 for coding on your claims. While many of the diagnoses you submit for mental health have a 1:1 relationship between ICD-9 and ICD-10, there are a number of ICD-9 codes for which you will have to determine the correct ICD-10 match. Your software will not be able to determine that for you. If you have not upgraded to the latest version of your software to handle the transition to ICD-10 and submission of ICD-10 codes, you are at risk for reimbursement delays and significant revenue losses. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) estimates that denial rates will rise by 100-200 percent and that days in A/R will grow by 20-40 percent.

Ensuring that you have the latest version of Office Therapy® and are submitting claims with our clearinghouse partner, TriZetto Provider Solutions®, will help you minimize any financial disruption. DocuTrac has worked hard to prepare for ICD-10 and has worked with TriZetto to test claim submissions which are ICD-10 compliant.

For more information on the transition to ICD-10 you can attend DocuTrac’s upcoming free webinar on the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10, as well as, TriZetto’s free webinars. Contact DocuTrac at 800-850-8510 for more information on our free webinars to help you prepare or to speak with a sales representative for information on upgrading to the latest version.

Don’t get caught unprepared for the change.

HIPAA, FaceTime, and You

Someone asked the question, “Is FaceTime HIPAA compliant?” According to Apple, by itself, yes FaceTime is HIPAA compliant, “each FaceTime session is encrypted end to end with unique session keys. Apple creates a unique ID for each FaceTime user, ensuring FaceTime calls are routed and connected properly.”

Compliance, however, depends on how the user manages the tool, the physical environment, devices, wireless connections, and networks being used. If these are not HIPAA compliant, then you are not compliant when using FaceTime or any other service or software. It’s up to each individual to assure that not only the service they use, but also the Hipaa networkphysical environment, network, and devices they use conform to HIPAA security standards.

For more information about HIPAA and how it applies to you, view our free webinar.
