Tips from Rose
on the ICD-10 Transition


DentalWriter has you covered for the ICD-10 transistion! We will alert you by e-mail in September when the update is ready to download and install.



ICD-10 transition to take place on October 1st

If you are billing medical insurance for TMD, appliances for obstructive sleep apnea and oral surgeries it's time to get ready for ICD-10. On October 1st, all Cross-Coders are moving from the coding set ICD 9, (International Classification of Diseases) to ICD-10.

Even for offices who are not billing medical insurance, learning ICD-10 is important as some dental insurers are now gearing up to require ICD diagnosis codes on dental claims.

But don't worry, there are steps that you can take to ensure a smooth transition.


5 steps for dental offices to get ready for ICD-10

1. Become familiar with the ICD-10 codes and new developments in medical billing in dentistry by attending a seminar.

2. Ensure that your medical billing practice management system is ready.

3. Catch up on your claims so that there is no backlog.

4. Check that your claim forms, the CMS 1500, are the most recent one - Version 02/12.

5. File your claims quickly after the transition.


Every health care provider will be switching over to ICD-10 on the same day, so being ready with clean claims will ensure reimbursement without glitches.


Where to Go From Here

If you're looking for a seminar on ICD-10 and cross-coding from dental to medical insurance, we've got you covered with many dates scheduled throughout the United States. Contact us at for more information.
