ICD-10 Monitor: Talk Ten Tuesday

ICD-10 Monitor’s Talk Ten Tuesday interviews this week  included AAPC National Advisory Board Member Annie Boynton, CPC, CPC-H, CPCO, CPC-P, CPC-I, RHIT, CCS, CCS-P, CPhT, who offered an update on the state of payer readiness for ICD-10. She spoke of how critical it was to have good education, training, and communication between the payers and the provider networks.

“There are a number of very savvy providers out there, and facilities out there, who are ahead of the curve,” she said. “But in our experience thus far, we have seen that a large number of providers are not aware of or have not received enough education about what it means to test with a payer and why it is important.”
