BackgroundGet ready for the ICD-10 coding transition on October 1st, 2015
The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is the standard diagnostic tool for epidemiology, health management and clinical purposes.
The existing version ICD-9 is currently used extensively for coding and billing purposes by the US healthcare constituents: providers, payers and administrative / government regulatory bodies.
ICD-9 is going to be retired on October 1st, 2015 and will be replaced by a completely different and non-backward compatible coding system - ICD-10.
The impact of this transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10, on the financial bottom-line of both hospitals and outpatient clinics is considered by many as significant.
The transition to ICD-10 is required for everyone covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) and will affect all components of the US health care industry.
There is an important difference between INPATIENTS and OUTPATIENTS:
Hospitals will need to code both diagnosis and procedures for INPATIENTS,
while OUTPATIENT facilities will need to code only diagnosis in ICD-10 CM beginning October 1, 2015.
