ICD-9 will be replaced with ICD-10 October 1, 2015 – Are you prepared?
In case you missed our seminar on how we are preparing for ICD 10 at Greater Waterbury Imaging Center and what this means to you, please review the presentation that we went over at our recent seminar.
The ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets on October 1, 2015. ICD-10 consists of two parts:
- ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding which is for use in all U.S. health care settings.
- ICD-10-PCS inpatient procedure coding which is for use in U.S. hospital settings.
