ICD10 Claims Processing
In efforts to ensure proper claims processing for inpatient claims and outpatient claims for dates of service beginning October 1st, 2015, all providers must provide a valid ICD-10 diagnosis code to the Jai Medical Systems Utilization Management Department upon notification of all Inpatient admissions and request for all outpatient services. Failure to provide the UM department a valid ICD-10 code could result in a delay or denial in payment. For all questions or inquiries regarding this matter please contact Laurie Hopple at 410-433-5600 option 16 or Amber Mathur at 410-433-5600 option 22. Thank you.
