As an enrolled Medicare provider, whether you bill for services from your own computer or pay for the services of a clearinghouse, you should be aware of software changes that must be in place by March 31, 2012. The original deadline was January 1, 2012, to have software Version 5010 installed. Audiologists and speech-language pathologists should verify with your program's software supplier or clearinghouse that the local Medicare Administrative Contractor has approved the software that you use to submit claims to Medicare. The new software will assist with the transition to the ICD-10 new diagnosis coding system effective October 2013.
