June 2015 Client Newsletter
GET READY NOW FOR ICD-10
When ICD-10 goes into effect on October 1, 2015, it will be important to have become familiar well in advance to ensure you know what needs to be documented in your medical records - office, nursing home, Operative Reports, etc. If you have not done it yet, now is a good time!
We are contacting clients to discuss how your practice will make this transition so it is smooth on October 1 and after. There are options, both paper and electronic. CPB will be able to handle ICD-10 coding for our clients just as we have ICD-9.
For those looking for inexpensive coding assistance, http://www.icd10data.comoffers online access for a rather economical fee - FREE! And it works on tablets and smartphones. Since ICD-10 requires more information than ICD-9, you should take a look at some of your common Dx's to view the various additional information that is required - you will likely be surprised. Many of the "Misc." ICD-9 codes do not have ICD-10 equivalents.
