5010 & WC
« on: November 03, 2011, 09:21:08 AM »
Does anyone know if the 5010 changes will be affecting workers comp as a whole?  Will their codes also change or billing format change?

CMS takes  the position that ALL providers must meet the January 1, 2012 deadline. With that said, ALL provider's need to be ready.. PERIOD.  Provider's need to be sure their vendors, clearinghouses, and billing companies  have a 5010 implementation plan in effect.

YES I UNDERSTAND THAT.  MY QUESTION IS ABOUT WORKERS COMPENSATION COMPANIES.

If you bill the workers compensation claims electronically then yes.  The 5010 changes are regarding electronic transmissions.
