The time for ICD-10 implementation is getting closer. Easy Billing Professional vs 0.93.14b available now has the ability for both ICD-9 and ICD-10. When the new CMS 1500 form is released Easy Billing Professional will be ready to implement the ICD-10 Code process directly into the form and already in the 5010 protocol for electronic submission.
The number of diagnosis pointers will remain the same. Currently, it is possible to point up to four diagnosis codes out of a new maximum of 12 for each procedure code. Main recent changes in diagnosis pointers included going from one field, where pointers were entered with dahes, spaces, and commas in between, to being entered in four separate fields.
Once the new CMS 1500 form is implemented into Easy Billing Professional users will be given a set period of time to send the old CMS form to the carriers but after the deadline date, currently planned for October 2013 users will not be able to send the old CMS form.
