Train for 2018 With the Top ICD-10 Experts in the Country

ICD-10 implementation has come and gone, and the healthcare community is now getting familiar with the first set of updates to the new coding system. While most everyone agrees that the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 was smooth and successful, it’s time to find out how the annual updates will play out.

ICD-10-CM

ICD coding is split into two categories. The World Health Organization (WHO)’s ICD-10-CM covers “clinical modifications” that standardize classification of diagnoses for morbidity purposes. The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) is responsible for modifying the WHO’s codes for the United States.

NCHS’s ICD-10-CM included over 360 new codes, more than 250 revisions and almost 150 deletions – some of which were surprises once the final system was released. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released its 2018 updates to the ICD-10-CM in June 2017.

ICD-10-PCS

ICD-10-PCS is the “procedural classification system” used only in hospital inpatient settings and is maintained and updated yearly by CMS. CMS’s 2017 updates to ICD-10-PCS for 2018, released in May 2017, include over 3,500 new codes, more than 1,800 revisions and almost 650 deletions.

For 2018, ICD-10-PCS now includes over 78,700 codes. CMS highlighted two areas in particular with noteworthy changes:

  • The Medical and Surgical section features revisions to body part values that should provide more clarity and usefulness as coded data.
  • Endoscopic approaches were added to tables throughout the system.

Get Ready for 2018

The updates to both ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS go to into effect on October 1, 2017 – will your practice and coders be ready?
