Coding as of 10/1/11

  1. Default Coding as of 10/1/11

    I have some payors that constantly fight us because we have IP stays admitted before 10/1 and discharge after 10/1. Our HIM department codes the claims with the codes effective 10/1. Is there a rule I can quote for these payors that our claims are coded correctly?

    With inpatient it has always been based on admit date so if the admit date was prior to 10/1 then you should use the 2010 dx codes for the discharge.
