The Indiana Health Coverage Programs has launched efforts to track our state’s readiness for ICD-10 implementation. A series of readiness surveys will help discover issues and barriers to compliance and also identify groups at risk for failing to meet the transition deadlines.

The state Medicaid program and its partners can then respond appropriately to improve and accelerate Indiana’s readiness for this major shift. Failure to meet ICD-10 deadlines could result in payment interruptions for the health care community – from all payers.

The ISMA alerted you to an IHCP survey in November last year; thanks to those member practices that participated. Another tracking survey is now ready for your attention. If you care for Medicaid patients, you are encouraged to respond in the two-week survey period.

IHCP Provider Readiness Survey II is scheduled for release Feb. 7 and will be available until Feb. 21 on the Medicaid website.

Additional periodic surveys will follow until arrival of the ICD-10 deadlines; continue reading ISMA Reports for details.

Who should complete this survey?
The individual in your organization responsible for planning, implementing and/or managing the transition from ICD-9 codes to the ICD-10 codes should complete the survey.

Given the scope of the survey, assistance from others within your organization may also be helpful.
