Healthcare providers, insurers adopt ICD-10 billing code

Loyola Medicine and every U.S. healthcare and insurance provider uses a medical coding system called ICD-10. The coding system best describes thousands of clinical diagnoses more thoroughly than previous tools.

By using the ICD-10 billing code, everyone who plays a role in your care will use one common "language" to discuss and coordinate all aspects of your care. ICD-10 replaces an outdated system and gives us a better tool for delivering better care.

Hospital-based billing

In 2013, Loyola adopted hospital-based billing, meaning your insurance company may receive two bills: one for the doctor’s fees (often called “professional fees”) and one for other costs, such as medical supplies and nursing care (“technical fees”).

Depending on how your insurance processes these two claims, you may incur two copayments or deductibles. For details, please contact your insurance company. The process change did not affect patients with Medicare or Medicaid coverage.

If you have additional questions or want to learn more, please call 800-424-4840, and a financial representative will be happy to speak with you.
