5 ICD-10 Frequently Asked Questions The purpose of this FAQ is to provide answers to commonly asked questions in regards to the implementation of ICD-10. When will the use of ICD-10 Diagnosis Codes be implemented? * Implementation of the use of ICD-10 diagnosis codes is October 1, Will there be a grace period for providers that are not ready? * No, PHC will not have a grace period for this implementation. 10/1/15 is the final date. Is PHC ready to start accepting ICD-10 diagnosis codes? * Yes, PHC s ICD-10 workgroup has tested this thoroughly and are ready to start accepting ICD-10 s. Will PHC be training providers on how to use ICD-10 s? * No ICD-10 was mandated by the Federal Government, so PHC will not be training on ICD-10 s.

6 My DOS is 9/25/15, but I am sending my claim in on 11/30/15. Which set of diagnosis codes do I use? * DOS prior to 10/1/15 must be billed with the ICD-9 code set. DOS on or after 10/1/15 must be billed with the ICD-10 code set. Hospital Inpatient stay with DOS 9/25 10/5/15. How should we bill? * Providers that get paid on a per diem basis may split bill a claim that crosses over the months with the correct DX set. * If a provider that gets paid on a per diem basis does not split bill, and the start date is in September, the provider needs to bill with ICD-9 diagnosis codes. * If the provider is non-contracted with PHC and is using DRG billing rules, then the provider does not need to split their claim. The discharge diagnosis will determine the entire payment for stay. If discharge is after 10/1/15, then ICD-10 will be required. If a provider sends in a TAR with ICD-9 codes and it runs through 10/1/15, is there a need to change the DX codes to ICD-10? * No, there is no need to change the DX code to ICD-10 or to send a new TAR. TAR s are not DX specific.

7 PROVIDER BULLETIN Behavior Health Treatment: Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder Volume 16-3 February 2016 WHAT S NEW Effective 2/1/2016, PHC assumes responsibility for the provision of Behavior Health Treatment (BHT) services for children ages 3-21 diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We worked collaboratively with DHCS, DDs and the RCs on this transition. We estimate more than 600 children will transition from the Regional Centers. An eraf is not required for BHT services. WHAT S NEXT Contact PHC Care Coordination Department if your patient receives treatment for BHT services, or you suspect your patient meets the diagnostic criteria for ASD. Family members can also call us. Our phone is (800) PHC requires a Diagnostic Evaluation; and Behavior Assessment and Treatment Plan Development. We are actively reaching out to the BHT Provider Network regarding authorization and billing requirements. DHCS supplies us with member information. We are reaching out to each identified child to assist with the transition of care. NOTES Reference policy MPUP3126 in our Provider Manual on our website for more informaiton. Refer children under the age of three to the Regional Center for services. Many children will continue to receive services from the Regional Center.
