  • Quick Tips

    Date of service 10/1/2015 or later: use ICD-10 codes

    Date of service 9/30/2015 or prior: use ICD-9 codes

    Do not submit claims/encounters with both ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes on the same submission. Health plans require separate submission.

    Clinical documentation- Make sure to document in detail so that the ICD code can be as specific as possible and is substantiated by the medical record.

    Document comorbid conditions to capture the most accurate and complete picture of the patient.

    Claims/encounters for date of service on or after 10/1/2015 submitted with ICD-9 codes will be rejected/returned for corrections.

    Referrals with ICD-10 or ICD-9 codes are currently accepted. No referrals with ICD-9 codes will be accepted after 10/1/2015.

    CPT and HCPCS codes are not impacted by ICD-10 changes.

    ICD-10 transition will happen on October 1, 2015.

    Office Ally Testing Steps

    To submit your ICD-10 test file, prepare a claim as you normally do. Remember to include ICD-10 Diagnosis Codes.

    Date of Service: Submit the test claim with current dates of service as Office Ally will be using a fake transition date of 10/01/2014

    Submit your test file

    For Upload Users Only: Submit a test file with the keyword OATESTICD in the name of the file, this keyword will prompt Office Allys system to process the file as an ICD-10 Test File

    For OLE/PM Users Only: Submit test claims using OLE/PM and once they process (they will reject), send an email to Office Ally [email protected] with the File ID. The claim will be recreated into an OATESTICD test file under your account.
