Q: Where can we find guidance that provides details for coding claims for services that span the ICD-10 implementation date of October 1, 2014?
 
A: MLN Matters article number SE1410 gives this guidance. The article explains how three factors affect how ICD-10-CM must be used on these episodes for services that span the October 1 date:
  • The claim “From” date (episode start date)
  • The Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) assessment completion date (OASIS item M0090 date)
  • The claim “Through” date
