Medicare ICD-10 Grace Period

Medicare’s ICD-10 grace period has expired and you can no longer count on payment for your claims that include unspecified ICD-10 codes — even if they are from the right code family.
The problem is that unspecified codes have been overused, and Medicare and other carriers have said “ENOUGH.” This means that unless you know how to find the most specific diagnosis codes, your claims will be denied.
