JustCoding's 2017 ICD-10-CM Code Update: After the Freeze - On-Demand
Wednesday, September 7, 2016
Peggy S. Blue, MPH, CCS, CCS-P, CPC, CEMC
The ICD-10-CM code set has been on a partial code freeze since 2011—two years longer than expected—due to repeated delayed implementation dates.
That ends this year, with more than 2,600 changes announced for implementation October 1, including additions, deletions, and revisions. In addition to expanded specificity and the ability to report more diagnoses, providers will be able to capture more information about each patient in codes. For example, the update brings codes to report a patient’s score on the National Institutes of Health stroke scale.
During this program, HCPro regulatory specialist Peggy S. Blue, MPH, CCS, CCS-P, CPC, CEMCC, will offer a comprehensive look at the updates and break down the notable changes planned for October 1.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Describe changes in the ICD-10 CM code set effective October 1, 2016
- Explain the reasons additional codes were needed for the new ICD-10-CM codes
- Identify which new diagnosis codes are CCs and MCCs
- Review notable code changes by body system
- Look at anatomical details to aid in reporting new codes
- Live Q&A
