CMS ICD-10 FAQ

Q. What if I run into a problem with the transition to ICD-10 on or after October 1st 2015?

A. CMS understands that moving to ICD-10 is bringing significant changes to the provider community. CMS will set up a communication and collaboration center for monitoring the implementation of ICD-10. This center will quickly identify and initiate resolution of issues that arise as a result of the transition to ICD-10. As part of the center, CMS will have an ICD-10 Ombudsman to help receive and triage physician and provider issues. The Ombudsman will work closely with representatives in CMS’s regional offices to address physicians’ concerns. As we get closer to the October 1, 2015, compliance date, CMS will issue guidance about how to submit issues to the Ombudsman.

Electronic health records (EHRs) by themselves are not the solution to a medical practice's efficiency problems. Implemented without planning, or in a haphazard manner, EHRs can increase problems, especially at first. However, there are fewer holdouts who stick with paper records every year.
