ICD-10 Will Change Everything.

January 25, 2013

Will you be ready to make the change to ICD-10? Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) has a variety of resources to assist you with your transition plans.

We’ve posted a new ICD-10 Provider Office Changes Map  in the Related Resources area to help show how ICD-10 will change everything from your front desk to your clinical areas:

  • Your front desk may need to have revised privacy policies.
  • Your lab may have to meet new reporting requirements.
  • Physicians will require training as codes increase from 17,000 under ICD-9 to 140,000 under ICD-10.

For additional resources, visit the ICD-10 page in the Standards and Requirements section of our Provider website at bcbstx.com/provider  for FAQs, to sign up for webinars and to take our Readiness Survey.
