Thread: Do non-covered entities have to accept ICD-10?

  1. #1

    Default Do non-covered entities have to accept ICD-10?

    Promo: Code Books
    Example: workers compensation carrier, who doesn't have any electronic processes, and may be considered a non-covered entity for HIPAA 5010 implementation. Would they have to accept ICD-10 codes as of implementation or would our organization need to set up a different workflow?

    Work Comp carriers must accept ICD-10 Diagnosis codes. Even if they are considered non-covered for the 5010.
