Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Julia Dunicheva


It is clear what dates should be used for ICD-9/ICD-10 codes validation in claim transaction:
- professional: "from" service date
- institutional outpatient: "from" service date
- institutional inpatient: "thru" service/discharge date

What dates should be used for respective services in 278 transaction:
1) 2000E\UM01 = AR: 2000E\DTP Discharge date when present, or otherwise 2000E\DTP Admission date "from"
2) 2000E\UM01 is not AR: 2000E\DTP Event Date "from"
Are these the correct dates to use?


If the Admission, Patient Event and/or Service dates start before 10/1/2013, then ICD9 should be utilized. If any of these dates start on, or after 10/1/2013, then ICD10 should be utilized.
