Hot Topics


Use of ICD 9 Codes

Effective October 22, 2018, HCHCP is initiating a 4 month long “soft launch” rule change that will no longer allow ICD 9 codes to be used for prior authorization requests. During the soft launch timeframe, please change any ICD 9 codes to ICD 10 when submitting your requests to KEPRO. Beginning February 18, 2019, the system will no longer allow ICD 9 codes and will stop your review from being submitted until an ICD 10 code is utilized. HCHCP network providers are strongly encouraged to only use ICD 10 codes for all request submissions. A notification will be posted on February 18, 2019 when the supporting rule to block ICD 9 codes is implemented.
