ICD-10 & TriZetto Provider Solutions
Supporting Our Providers through the Transition
The move to ICD-10 is one of the biggest challenges for the healthcare industry in our lifetime. Our team will support you through all phases of this critical change — from preparation to the initial transition and adjustment period. We have updated our systems to transmit ICD-10 codes and will help you make a smooth transition by:
- Testing your ICD-10 coded claim files;
- Working with our payers and other trading partners to test ICD-10 claim files with them to the extent allowed by each one;
- Offering helpful educational resources; and
- Dedicating a team of knowledgeable EDI specialists to provide support and answer testing questions for clients, channel partners and payers.
We’re giving you a head start.

Keep in mind that while many codes in ICD-9-CM map directly to codes in ICD-10, in some cases, a clinical analysis may be required to determine which code or codes should be selected for your mapping. Always review mapping results before applying them.
