Complete lists of diagnosis and procedure codes are now available for providers, in preparation for the Oct. 1 transition to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition (ICD-10) code set.
These lists can help providers determine how to accurately report ICD-10 codes. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services previously announced a one-year grace period during which Medicare audit contractors will not deny physician claims due to incorrect ICD-10 codes, as long as the code the provider lists on the claim belongs to the correct code family.
America’s Essential Hospitals has compiled a list of resources to help members prepare for a seamless transition to ICD-10, including fact sheets, implementation guides, interactive guides, and more.
