Congress recently failed to adopt language that would further delay ICD-10 leaving in place the current implementation date of October 1st, 2015. It is not likely that there will be any further changes to the ICD-10 implementation date.
In order to avoid rejections or delays in reimbursements due to improper coding in claims submissions, providers need to act now. Add-ons to your current billing software are the easiest solutions to the inevitable billing code issues of ICD-10. For Lytec users, Encoder Pro is a viable solution. Providers can either purchase Lytec with Encoder Pro or update their current software to include the latest Encoder Pro to assist with the ICD-10 coding changes. Encoder Pro for Lytec is only available for those who have the most current version of Lytec; levels Professional or Client/Server. The version that integrates with Lytec is installed in with your Lytec and is not hosted on the Web like the standard Encoder Pro licenses.
