Feature Update: ICD-10 Codes

October 1, 2017

Dear Luminello member,

Just a quick announcement to let you know that Luminello has updated the assessment code database to incorporate the latest updates to ICD-10. Fortunately, this only involves a very small percentage of the codes we use, mostly centered around substance use. For additional details, check out this helpful guide on DSM-5 Diagnoses and New ICD-10-CM Codes.

What do I have to do?

For new free text, followup or intake notes – nothing different!  Enter a diagnosis like you normally do.

For cloning notes which were signed before 10/1/17 – be sure any codes affected by this update (reference the link above) are removed, and use the new ones instead.

For billing for services in which an affected diagnosis was in use both before and after 10/1/17 – be sure to create different billing statements, one ending on 9/30/17 (which will show the old ICD-10 code) and another beginning on 10/1/17 (which will show the new ICD-10 code).

What if I have questions?

Email us at support@luminello.com – we’re always happy to help!
