October 1, 2015, healthcare payers, including Medicare, will shift from ICD-9 diagnosis codes to ICD-10.
American HomePatient will support our payor and provider partners through the transition as needed to protect our patients on rental avoid out of pocket cost.
If you are a clinician who referred a patient to American HomePatient who is impacted by the transition, you will hear from us to update the medical record if a one to one ICD-10 match is not available. You may reach out to your local branch any time for additional information.
We also offer a crosswalk tool on common diagnoses here: http://ahom.com/_content_assets/files/ICD-9%20to%20ICD-10%20Crosswalk.pdf
