We have been sounding the warning about the impact of the revised ICD-10 medical coding for nearly four years (and three deadline extensions).

On October 1, the official compliance date will have arrived. Just as we have anticipated, the new ICD-10 coding has caught many healthcare providers unprepared for what is going to be an enormous challenge to overcome.

The full impact of ICD-10 has even captured the attention of national business media, as reported this past week by Fox Business Network’s Gerri Willis, in New Medical Codes a Potential Mess for Insurers, Patients.

Healthcare insurers and payers who are using our Foxtrot technology armed themselves for the onset of ICD-10 months or years ago. They are well-prepared for the changes ICD-10 necessitates and are smoothly transitioning to the new medical codes.

Others, however, will now find themselves battling to adjust to the changes, which will dramatically impact their ability to bill and pay accurately. They will experience growing receivables and their overall revenues and cash flow may be negatively impacted.
