Are You Prepared for the ICD-10 Diagnosis & Procedure Coding Overhaul Coming Oct. 1?

Denials Could Hit the Roof If Your Specificity Doesn’t Meet Required Standards.

Effective Oct. 1, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) will lift the one-year reprieve from post payment reviews due to unspecified codes, and that means your practice/facility could be susceptible to denials and payment loss if your reporting fails to meet the expanded coding standards. So now is the time to ensure that your documentation has the specificity ICD-10 requires and that you have the ICD-10 coding training resources you need to locate the most specific code.

Over 4,000 ICD-10-PCS and 1,900 ICD-10-CM Code Updates Coming for 2017

 CMS also ends the five-year ICD-10 code freeze resulting in a flow of:

  • Over 1,900 ICD-10-CM codes (1,943 new codes, 422 revisions, and 305 deletions)
  • Over 4,000 ICD-10-PCS codes (3,651 new and 487 revised codes).

Sorting through the final code update can be a daunting task, and you and your staff will need all the help you can get. Do you know how the new ICD-10-PCS and ICD-10-CM guidelines and codes will change your coding?

Start Preparing Now: Take the time between now and Oct. 1 to make sustained efforts to learn the upcoming ICD-10 changes and refine your coding and documentation practices. You need to ensure your training is accurate so you aren’t caught up in any surprises as you work further in the system.
