Ohio Department of Medicaid Posts New ICD-10 Information

Implementation Date 10/01/2015

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) would appreciate your assistance by providing the following ICD-10 information to your members, if applicable.

ODM and the Medicaid managed care plans have worked together to provide you with another co-branded Q&A document for Independent Providers. The document is located on ODM’s ICD-10 webpage under Provider Q&A, May 2015.

Billing guidance documents for Ohio Medicaid’s ICD-10 implementation entitled, “ICD-10 TIPS,” have also been posted to Ohio Medicaid’s ICD-10 webpage and are located under the ICD-10 TIPS (Billing Guidance) section.  Last month’s ICD-10 TIPS focused on Inpatient Prior Authorization/Precertification. Previously released ICD-10 TIPS include: Claims Compliance Date, Span Date Billing, Dental Claims, Billing Unspecified Codes, and Inpatient Hospital Interim Billing. Additional billing guidance documents will be posted in the months to come.

Ohio Medicaid is on schedule to meet the ICD-10 implementation compliance date of October 1, 2015.  Please visit our ICD-10 webpage at: ICD-10 information such as Provider Q&A, trading partner testing, free coding practice for providers (CollabT), OhioMHAS coding resources, and other documents have been posted.

Special Program Note:  The ICD-10 implementation is a featured topic at the OAMES Summer Camp seminar on June 24 in Columbus.  We'll have an expert consultant discuss referral source readiness and what you need to do now to make sure you're ready for the change on October 1.  We'll also have a representative from the Ohio Department of Medicaid provider an update to providers on the state agency's transition readiness.
