Earlier in July, CMS sent a letter out to Medicare providers. The letter was sent as a reminder that in order to successfully bill for services, ICD-10 codes must be used starting on Oct. 1, 2015. The Medicare claims processing system will not have the capability to accept ICD-9 codes for dates of service after September 30, 2015, and will not accept claims that contain both ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes.
