ICD-10 are you ready?

ICD-10 launches on October 1, 2015. The launch of ICD-10 marks one of the most significant changes to healthcare in recent history. Are you ready? In addition to compliance of a federal mandate, the improved classification of ICD-10 is expected to result in fewer rejected claims and more accurate payment of new procedures.

As we enter the final stages of readiness, Optum Medical Network wants to ensure your systems and business processes are ready to go. Below are resources we can provide to help support your practice and educate you and your staff prior to go live:

  • 1. ICD – 10 Readiness Questionnaire
    To help identify your immediate needs, we encourage you to fill out our online ICD-10 Readiness survey. Based on your response, we can help identify next steps to help prepare your practice for the switch.
