ICD-10 Conversion

The industry-wide move to the 10th version of the International Classification of Diseases code set (ICD-10) will occur on October 1, 2014. As we prepare for this transition we will be posting our progress and helpful resources for your reference.

Blue Cross is working diligently to be fully compliant and ready for the mandated switch to ICD-10. Here are a few of our preparation milestones:

  • Blue Cross has completed a company/system wide impact assessment to ensure all system changes are in place for the mandated switch to ICD-10 on October 1, 2014.
  • Blue Cross is currently performing initial internal system testing.
  • Blue Cross will regularly survey the provider community to assess partner readiness. Your participation is important.
  • Blue Cross will begin external provider testing in the first quarter of 2014.
