Operating Rules



Affordable Care Act (ACA) defines operating rules as “the
necessary business rules and guidelines for the electronic
exchange of information that are not defined by a
standard or its implementation specifications.”
Operating rules address gaps in standards, help refine
the infrastructure that supports electronic data exchange
and recognize interdependencies among transactions.
Goal: Create as much uniformity in the implementation
of electronic standard as possible.

ICD-10 Update





ICD-10 is the biggest change in standard healthcare coding systems in
decades.
ICD-10 will impact every system, process and transaction that contains or
uses a diagnosis code.
This past March, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
conducted a successful ICD-10 testing week.
This testing week allowed an opportunity for testers and CMS alike to learn
valuable lessons about ICD-10 claims processing.
HHS expects to release an interim final rule in the near future that will
include a new compliance date that would require the use of ICD-10
beginning October 1, 2015. The rule will also require HIPAA covered
entities to continue to use ICD-9-CM through September 30, 2015
