CMS Update
Encounter Data Processing System
(EDPS) Overview
Presented By
Patty Brennan
Quality and Compliance Director
CMS Regulation- IPPS Final Rule
 CMS issued rule to authorize the expansion of the collection of
encounter data beyond the 5 elements required for RAPS
submission:
– “Given the increased importance of the accuracy of our risk
adjustment methodology, in the FY 2009 IPPS proposed rule (73 FR
23667), we proposed to amend §422.310 to provide that CMS will
collect data from MA organizations regarding each item and service
provided to an MA plan enrollee.
– This will allow us to include utilization data and other factors that
CMS can use in developing the CMS-HCC risk adjustment models in
order to reflect patterns of diagnoses and expenditures in the MA
program.
– Specifically, we proposed to revise §422.310(a) to clarify that risk
adjustment data are data used not only in the application of risk
adjustment to MA payments, but also in the development of risk
adjustment models.”
© Ingenix, Inc. 17
Purpose for Expansion of Collection of
Encounter Data
 CMS has indicated that the expansion is required
for the following purposes:
– Measure healthcare utilization in MA
organizations
– Calibrate MA specific Risk Adjustment Models
– Calculate Disproportionate Share Hospital
(DSH) payments
 10/29/2010 – CMS held national meeting to
discuss initial requirements and timing
– Encounter Data Processing System (EDPS) will
eventually replace RAPS

EDPS vs RAPS- Significant Changes
There will be major differences between the Encounter Data Processing
System (EDPS) and the current Risk Adjustment System. The
most significant and consequential are as follows:

Data collection changes from 5 elements to all elements of the
HIPAA standard 5010 (up to 900 elements)

Submission of data from all types of service
–

CMS will be responsible for filtering data to determine if eligible for Risk Adjustment
MA plans must submit data within 12 months from date of service
–
Under RAPS submission, data for 1/1/2009 – 12/31/2009 is not finalized until 1/1/2011 which
allows a 24 month period.
–
If 12 month rule was adopted by CMS, deadline for 1/1/2010 data would be 1/1/2011 versus
1/31/2012 under the RAPS process
© Ingenix, Inc. 20
EDPS vs RAPS- Significant Changes, con’t
 Submission of adjudicated claims data
–
Adjudicated claims equals paid and denied, not pended
 CMS will apply CEM (Common Edits and Enhancements
Module) Edits
–
These edits are utilized for Medicare FFS but the same level of edits may
not be needed for MA data
 The process for submission of Alternate Data (i.e. Chart
Review) still under review by CMS
 Parallel Processing
–
© Ingenix, Inc. 21
During the transition phase, plans will submit data through both systems:
• EDPS – full 5010 standard
• RAPS format to Risk Adjustment System
Key Considerations Under Evaluation
by CMS
 Timing (“Go Live” January 3, 2012)
– Aggressive timeline may cause issues for health plans
especially given the lack of fully documented requirements
from CMS
 12 Month Rule
– CMS originally indicated 12 month rule would apply but have
recently indicated that they are considering expanding the 12
month deadline for submission of data
– However, CMS has indicated a strong bias toward
decreasing the timeframe for submission of data
© Ingenix, Inc. 22
Key Considerations Under Evaluation
by CMS, con’t
 Submission of Alternate Data
– CMS has indicated that their will be a mechanism to
submit alternate data.
– CMS has signaled they are leaning toward tying the chart
audit data to a claim
– What happens when you cannot tie a chart audit to a
claim?
 The flexibility of CEM edits
– Soft or hard edits on many of the elements that are
currently not required for RAPS submission but are hard
edits for Medicare FFS

Diabetic Ulcers
Foot Care:
 The sequence of events
leading to lower extremity
amputation is well known in
people with neuropathy or
peripheral vascular disease.
– While vascular disease leading to
ischemia is certainly a factor in the
pathogenesis, 60–70% of diabetic
foot ulcers are primarily
neuropathic in origin. 1

 Peripheral neuropathy is common among people
with diabetes and can result in foot ulceration
accompanied by cellulitis or osteomyelitis, and a

Correct DX coding would be: 250.6X with 357.2
Note: Caution when coding “Loss of Sensation” 782.0
Consider coding “Loss of Protective Sensation (LOPS)“ 357.2
Note: Medicare covers, as a physician service, an evaluation (examination and
treatment) of the feet no more often than every 6 months for individuals with a
documented diagnosis of diabetic sensory neuropathy and LOPS, as long as
the beneficiary has not seen a foot care specialist for some other reason in the
interim. LOPS shall be diagnosed through sensory testing with the 5.07
monofilament using established guidelines, such as those developed by the
National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases guidelines.

Underlying Disease – Diabetes Mellitus
 Example:
– “Type I uncontrolled diabetic atherosclerosis of the plantar
surface of left midfoot with associative ulcerative cellulitis”
• 250.73
Diabetes w/ peripheral circulatory disorder (Type I, Uncontrolled)
• 440.23
Atherosclerosis of native arteries, extremities w/ ulceration
• 707.14
Ulcers of the plantar surface, midfoot (except pressure
ulcers), unspecified
• 682.7
Cellulitis, foot, except toes
 The underlying disease is coded first, followed by the
manifestation(s) code.
 The linkage has been established as “diabetic” and
the 4th digit is properly assigned on the 250.7X.

Underlying Disease – Diabetes Mellitus
 Be Specific – Coding mistakes can be costly
If the same scenario was documented as:
No cause and effect
relationship established
 Example:
– “Type I uncontrolled diabetes with atherosclerosis of the plantar
surface of left midfoot with associative ulcerative cellulitis”
• 250.03
Diabetes without Complications
• 440.23
Atherosclerosis of native arteries, extremities w/ ulceration
• 707.14
Ulcers of the plantar surface, midfoot (except pressure
ulcers), unspecified
• 682.7
Cellulitis, foot, except toes
With this example, there is nothing indicating that the atherosclerosis of
the lower extremities was due to the diabetes.

Documentation & Coding PAD / PVD
Recommended language:
– PAD / PVD - Peripheral arterial disease, peripheral vascular
disease, and claudication are coded to 443.9.
• It is important to note that this code excludes atherosclerosis of the
arteries of the extremities.
– Atherosclerosis - of native arteries of the extremities,
Category 440, is further classified as such:
– 440.21 With intermittent claudication
– 440.22 With rest pain
– 440.23 With ulceration (see ulcer coding rules)
– 440.24 With gangrene
– 440.20 Unspecified
© Ingenix, Inc. 34
Documentation & Coding PAD / PVD
Recommended language:
Peripheral Vascular diseases as a result of
atherosclerosis of extremities:
 Atherosclerosis of Native arteries of the
Extremities (440.2x).
– For coding purposes, the physician must document
that the PVD is due to atherosclerosis (ASPVD)
before a code from 440.2 may be assigned. 2
– Further specification is needed for specific coding
if the physician documents vague diagnoses as
peripheral vascular disease or intermittent claudication.

Documentation & Coding PAD / PVD
When Assigning Atherosclerosis
of Arteries of the Extremities 440.2X
Recommended language:
Patients documented as atherosclerosis with
intermittent claudication due to atherosclerosis
are coded to 440.21
If claudication is documented without mention
of atherosclerosis, only code 443.9
Ulcers: Codes from
Subcategory 707.1x
(Ulcer of lower limb)
should be assigned
in addition to 440.23
or 440.24
Patients documented as atherosclerosis with
neither gangrene nor ulceration, but with rest pain
are coded to 440.22
If rest pain is documented without
mention of atherosclerosis, only code 729.5
All patients documented as atherosclerosis
without gangrene, but with ulceration are
coded to 440.23
If ulceration is documented without
mention of atherosclerosis, only
code 707.9
All patients documented as atherosclerosis
with gangrene are coded to 440.24
If gangrene is documented without
mention of atherosclerosis, only
code 785.4

Rules of Coding PAD / PVD:
Ischemic Ulcers
 Subcategory 707.1x Ulcer of lower limbs, except
pressure ulcer
▪ First: Code any underlying or causal condition
Example:
– Atherosclerosis of Extremities w/ Ulceration
- 250.7x – Diabetic PVD with Ulceration … or
- 250.8x – Diabetic Ulcers, Unspecified
- 440.23

454.0
– chronic venous insufficiency, NOS, without varicose veins
(use additional code for any associated ulceration 707.10 707.9) - 459.81
– with varicose veins and inflammation or infection (any part or
unsp. site) – 454.2
© Ingenix, Inc. 38
PAD Documentation & Coding –
(Generalized & Unspecified)
Recommended language to avoid:
 Diagnostic statements that do not impact severity
adjustment as they are default coded to 440.9:
(Atherosclerosis - generalized and unspecified)
– Arteriosclerotic (vascular) disease (440.9)
– Generalized arteriosclerosis (440.9)
– Arteriosclerotic endarteritis (440.9)
– Arteriosclerosis obliterans (440.9)
– Arteriosclerosis with calcification (440.9)
© Ingenix, Inc. 39
Documentation & Coding PAD / PVD –
(Diabetic PVD)
Recommended language:
Vascular diseases often occur as a
manifestation of diabetes:
 Diabetic Peripheral Circulatory Disorders
(250.7X and 443.81)
– If the PVD is due to diabetes mellitus, codes 250.7x and
443.81 would be assigned. (Not 443.9)
– Provide the appropriate linkage for the diabetes with
Peripheral Circulatory Manifestations (250.7x)
© Ingenix, Inc. 40
Documentation & Coding PAD / PVD –
(Other & Unspecified)
Recommended language:
Vascular diseases of other and unspecified
types of PAD / PVD:
 Other Peripheral Vascular Disease
(PVD), Unspecified (443.9)
– Peripheral arterial disease, peripheral vascular disease, and
claudication are coded to 443.9
▪
It is important to note that this code excludes
atherosclerosis of the arteries of the extremities
(440.20 – 440.22).
– This code is assigned if there is no additional documentation
regarding the type of manifestation of PVD / PAD.

Underlying Disease – Diabetes Mellitus
 Coding of Underlying Disease (Etiology)
and Manifestation
• Code both the etiology (underlying disease) and the
manifestation of the disease.
• The underlying disease is coded first.
• Both the underlying disease and the manifestation are
in the present tense.
• ICD-9 states," the most commonly used
etiology/manifestation combinations are the codes for
Diabetes Mellitus” 250.XX, [XXX.XX].1

Underlying Disease – Diabetes Mellitus
250.00 is over-reported
 Diabetes Mellitus, code 250.00 without mention of
complication is appropriate at times.
 However, if complications exist, code to the specific
complications and manifestations.
© Ingenix, Inc. 44
Underlying Disease: Make The Connection
 The documentation MUST make
the connection.
 Document and code to the
specific complications and
manifestations in the chart.
 In order to code a disease or
condition as a manifestation of
DM:
– it must be stated that the disease
or condition is diabetic or due to
Diabetes.
