ICD-10 Ready or Not here it comes–Bill Griffin, MA, ATC, LAT, CWCE
On October 1, 2013 the diagnosis code set will change from ICD-9 to ICD-10. This is not a simple update but a major change in the format and quantity of diagnosis codes. In this session we will present an overview of the new ICD-10, a look at the crosswalk between the old and new sets and give some examples of orthopedic diagnoses in the new ICD-10 or I-10 as coders say.
If you have any responsibilities for coding or billing, this topic is a must have on your to do list.
