ICD-10s first anniversary [The return of October 1]

Aug 17, 2016, 13:17 PM

ICD-10 is in production, but as its one-year anniversary approaches, providers should be aware of some additional items that will need to be addressed for this October.  

  1. The ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee has lifted the partial code freeze and thousands of new codes have been added for fiscal year 2017. 
  2. The Medicare grace period on code specificity for Part B post payment audits will end October 1, 2016. 
  3. Payers may begin to adjust medical policies based on the new specificity offered by ICD-10.

This means that organizations will need to take steps to incorporate the new codes into their systems and operations and continue to focus on clinical documentation improvement to enable coding at the highest level of specificity.  Many of these activities should already be familiar as annual code updates occurred under ICD-9.
