It's been a long time coming, but the implementation of ICD-10 will occur on October 1, 2015. Preparation should already be underway, but studies are showing that many practices and organizations are behind in their work. The good news is that it's not too late to plan the systemic changes and educate the providers and staff regarding the new code set. RMACI is especially suited to serve OB/GYN and OB/GYN subspecialities in the preparation that is unique to the practice of Women's Health.
There are many wonderful resources that are available to help you get ready for ICD-10. The cost of these resources can range from a little to a lot. The key is to ensure that you receive advice and assistance that is...
• Comprehensive—Getting coding “training” is not sufficient if there are systemic operational issues that will make it difficult, if not impossible, to successfully use ICD-10 in your practice setting.
• Targeted—A great deal of ICD-10 training is generic in nature. Why obtain training that is not relevant to obstetrics and gynecology?
• Practical—Case studies and real-life examples are the best way to learn ICD-10. RMACI’s ICD-10 training is built around “real world” situations that you will face after ICD-10 is implemented.
• Customized—Every practice has a different mix of payers and payment issues. While general information related to OB/GYN is available from RMACI, you can have customized training developed that specifically addresses the issues you routinely face.
• Affordable—The cost of preparing for ICD-10 will vary by practice setting and situation, but common estimates are frequently quoted at approximately $2,000 per physician.* RMACI can delivered the highest quality training, designed specifically for you, at a fraction of this price.
If you are uncomfortable with your preparation for ICD-10, or if you haven't yet started preparing, it's not too late! RMACI can help you to be excellent in the use of ICD-10 and minimize the risk associated with being unprepared for this vital change.
