Turning on ICD-10 Codes

This page will walk the user through how to activate ICD-10 codes in TRAKnet to allow for dual coding.

What is ICD-10/Dual Coding?

ICD-10 is the 10th revision of the International Classification of Disease. It will become required for all providers to begin coding in ICD-10 on October 1, 2015. For more information about ICD-10 and the approaching deadline, click here.

Dual coding is the ability to add both ICD-9 codes and ICD-10 codes to an invoice when creating a claim, at which point the user can then determine which is sent: ICD-9 or ICD-10. This will allow the user to customize which information is sent to each individual insurance company in the efforts to alleviate any issues where certain companies are not accepting ICD10 codes at this time.

Activating ICD-10 Codes

To activate the ability to dual code with ICD-10 and ICD-9 codes, you will need to activate this setting in TRAKnet. This can be accomplished by following the below steps:

  1. Log into TRAKnet.
  2. Click the Help drop-down menu.
  3. Select the option Practice Settings.
  4. Check the box for ICD-10 Active.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Restart TRAKnet.

Now that this setting is active, the SmartSheet10 tab in the Encounter > Invoice screen will become active, allowing the user to pull codes from their SmartSheets to begin populating both ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes on claims. Do note, however, that this does not mean ICD-10 codes are being sent. Rather, this simply means that both codes are being added to claims, and only the ICD-9 code is being sent.
