Recently TSO received a progress update from Mark Crowley with Crystal PM on ICD-10 and the new CMS 1500 form. ICD-10 codes have been fully tested and running properly in Crystal PM and they are currently working to improve the coding efficiency for offices when selecting the proper code. Crystal will conduct ICD-10 training webinars and will have pre-recorded videos and documentation available to offices. ICD-10 codes will be effective October 1, 2014.
The most immediate update with the Crystal software is the CMS 1500 form which is changing in January 2014. Crystal has the new 1500 form mapped and working in the Crystal PM program. The main change to the 1500 form is the expansion of Box 21 from 4 diagnosis codes to 12 diagnosis codes in preparation for ICD-10.
