The 5010 837I transaction implementation in January 2011 will allow providers, hospitals and skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) to report up to 25 ICD-9-CM diagnosis and 25 ICD-9-CM procedure codes when submitting claims to Parts A and B Medicare administrative contractors (A/B MACs) and/or fiscal intermediaries (FIs) for services to Medicare beneficiaries.
Current claim forms allow for only nine ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes and six ICD-9-CM procedure codes. Medical coding and billing staff should prepare for this change.

The test asks how many diagnosis and CPT codes will be allowed. The article only speaks of ICD-9 procedure codes. Are the tests purposely filled with trick questions? Any one else notice this problem?
Fell out of bed feenlig down. This has brightened my day!
I noticed the ICD9procedural as well. The article doesn’t refer to CPT codes which are different than ICD9 procedural codes. It also does not state physicians, but providers, hospitals & SNF’s.
