A Note Regarding ICD-10
Beginning on October 1, 2015, Wisconsin Physician's Service, the Department's third party administrator for the Children's Long-Term Supports (CLTS) Waivers claims processing, will accept only ICD-10 medical codes for any medical service claims submitted for payment after October 1, 2015. Provider claims submitted with ICD-9 codes after October 1, 2015 will not be accepted.

Non-medical providers using the ICD-9 default code of 780.99 can use the CD-10 default code of R6889 when submitting electronically. Paper and spreadsheet claims can continue to be submitted without an ICD-10 code for non-medical services.

Additional details are available on the ForwardHealth ICD-10 Code Set Transition page.
