On October 1, 2014, the ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets.
The transition to ICD-10 is required for everyone covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA). Please note, the change to ICD-10 does not affect CPT coding for outpatient procedures and physician services.
Stay up to date on ICD-10!
Access two free Medscape Education modules that provide guidance to small practices making the transition to ICD-10: ICD-10: A Roadmap for Small Clinical Practices and ICD-10: Small Practice Guide to a Smooth Transition. Continuing medical education (CME) and continuing education (CE) credits are available to physicians and nurses who complete the learning modules.
