Backdrop:

The ICD-10-CM codes are updated annually with the implementation of the updates going into effect on October 1st.  This year is no different, with over 300 changes that every office should be aware of for proper coding and billing.

Description:

There are 3 sets of transaction codes  that are used for describing procedures and the medical necessity for those procedures on claims submitted to and processed by insurance companies for reimbursement.  Diagnosis codes identify the medical necessity of those procedures and services that have been performed and allow the insurance companies to have an understanding of why they are being performed.  The World Health Organization and CMS manage the ICD-10-CM manual and make annual changes to accommodate better coding and new diseases and conditions.  These changes go into effect on October 1st of each year, and must be applied to any professional services claim with a date of service after October 1st.
