Our team is proficient with

  • CPT, ICD-9, HCPCS, and DRG coding across various specialties
  • Insurance and governmental regulatory requirements
  • Payer-specific coding requirements
  • ICD-10 Readiness
One challenge that the entire healthcare industry is bound to face in the coming year is the conversion of ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding guidelines, effective October 1, 2015. The new classification system will come with more than 155,000 different codes, a significant expansion from the mere 17,000 codes available in ICD-9. The transition to ICD-10 is a comprehensive undertaking that impacts every facet of the billing business. It calls for significant modifications to clinical documentation, coding processes, and workflows. If it is not managed properly, the resulting productivity losses, claim denials, and impact on revenue could be devastating. Rest assured, Grandeur Healthcare is fully prepared for this transition so that our customers are well protected from the impact of the transition.
