HELP!! Medicare rejecting I10 (hypertension) as non specific

  1. Default HELP!! Medicare rejecting I10 (hypertension) as non specific
    New Call-to-action
    Since the 10/1/18 ICD-10 update, Medicare is rejecting our claims if I10 is on it as a diagnosis. My providers tell me this is the proper code to diagnose the patient and further specificity is not correct. Is anyone else having this problem? If so, what can we do?

  2. Default
    That sounds like a computer error on their part. I would contact the helpdesk and see what's up
