Property and Casualty ICD-10 State Readiness Resource Center

September 03, 2015
The HIPAA adopted ICD-10 code set for workers'  compensation will become effective October 1, 2015. It is important for stakeholder workers'  compensation contingency planning, to be able to identify the ICD-10 adoption status of states. The implications of a state not adopting ICD-10 will require state stakeholders to accommodate and maintain dual processing systems.

In an effort to assist the industry in identifying ICD-10 state readiness & reiterate the need for a transition plan, WEDI has written a letter to each state governor with a carbon copy to the Department of Health and Human Services requesting the status of their state in adopting and/or transitioning to ICD-10. The letter also serves as an educational outreach regarding the impact to stakeholders if ICD-10 is not adopted. (Letter to the States).

WEDI ICD-10 State Readiness List:
The WEDI ICD-10 State Readiness List will be updated accordingly based on states’ responses. Make sure you sign up for the WEDI P&C eBilling list serve to obtain ICD-10 State Readiness Alert Notifications when a new state is added. Please notify sholvey@wedi.org if your state has adopted ICD-10 and is not represented on the list. Thank you!
