Transition to ICD-10: Home Health Episodes that Span October 1, 2015

Since Home Health (HH) claims are submitted for a 60-day payment episode, there may be cases where an episode spans October 1. In these cases, the Requests for Anticipated Payment (RAPs) for an episode will be submitted using ICD-9 codes and the corresponding claim (which spans the October 1, 2015 implementation date) will be submitted using ICD-10 codes. This FAQ and MLN Matters article contains more information about coding HH episodes that span the ICD-10 implementation date.
