Athenahealth is guaranteeing consumers that it will complete the transition to ICD-10 code sets by the implementation date of October 2014. The guarantee assures customers they will not pay for services if athenahealth fails to meet the deadline. "We will incorporate ICD-10 Medicare medical necessity checks into our patented billing rules engine, as CMS makes them available. You will be able to move from SNOMED to ICD-10 diagnosis codes directly within the athenaClinicals EHR to send orders and create claims," according to the company.
