    Lightbulb ICD-10 and HIPAA 5010

    Would anybody be willing to clarify the specifics regarding HIPAA 5010 and ICD-10 implementation? As berickson mentions in the other thread, we cannot implement ICD-10 until HIPAA 5010 is in place. I have somewhat of an understanding of HIPAA 4010 and 5010 but would like to hear other coders’ candor regarding this topic.

    Thank you,

    neuropathy

    Thumbs up Hipaa 5010 & Icd-10

    An excellent resource to the reason behind the prerequisite of HIPAA 5010 implementation prior to ICD-10 implementation can be found at : http://waysandmeans.house.gov/hearin...e=view&id=4829 .

    The December 6, 2007 issue of Health Data Management gives the timeline for implementation of HIPAA 5010, a prerequisite for ICD10, at the year 2014. And in another thread, someone referred to the possibility of ICD-10 never becoming implemented in the US as as “blowing by”. I hate to think of dollars spent over the years, planning for this implementation which I have been reading about for 12 years. That is hardly a "blow by".

    Those of you who are following this may be interested in viewing the comparison between the US ICD-10 and that of Australia and Canada @

    Yesterday, I had someone verify my credential and to my surprise AAPC is showing that I have NOT taken the ICD-10-CM Proficiency Exam. I called AAPC and they confirmed that they do not show I took the exam. I explained to her I took the test on 12/17/2014 with time I signed on and when I finished. I was instructed to fax my certification to them. As of today when I check still does not show that I took and pass the exam. I suggest that if everyone that took the exam to check the credentials as well.
