New Jersey Medicaid ICD-10 Update

On August 4, 2014 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a final rule formally establishing October 1, 2015 as the new compliance date for health providers, health plans, and health care clearinghouses to transition to ICD-10, the tenth revision of the International Classification of Diseases. ICD-9 codes will continue to be reported through September 30, 2015 as per CMS.

The State of New Jersey Medicaid will follow the CMS guidelines and deny all claims not using the new ICD-10 codes if the service dates are October 1, 2015 or later. All claims with service dates September 30, 2015 or earlier must use ICD-9 codes.
