Banner Health is waiting for the final rule from HHS, but anticipate that the new transition date will be Oct. 1, 2015. Based on that date, Banner Health ICD-10 teams have reforecasted project timelines.
We will update this page as developments occur.Like all health systems across the United States, Banner Health is planning for a major organizational transition from ICD-9 (International Classification of Diseases) to the much more detailed ICD-10.
A successful ICD-10 conversion is critical to Banner because without it, payments from providers could be interrupted. ICD-10, which offers more robust coding language, also will make it easier for providers to communicate with payers and other entities.
All Banner departments will be directly or indirectly affected by this federally required transition.
The number of diagnosis codes expands from 14,000 to 68,000 and procedure codes increases from 4,000 to nearly 87,000.
Education is mandatory for all BMG and BH employed providers. It is strongly recommended for other providers. Education must be completed by Sept. 15, 2014.
- General and specialty sessions: Every provider must attend a general and specialty specific session. Each session is about 40 minutes long. After completing each session, return to this page to take your assessments.
- Mandatory assessments: Every provider must complete an assessment after their general and specialty session to log attendance and to receive CMEs.
