Healthcare providers should start preparing for the fall 2014 implementation of ICD-10 codes, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services experts advised during a webinar yesterday. ICD-10 codes will replace ICD-9 codes on Oct. 1, 2014. They apply to all Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act-compliant healthcare provider reports, including MDS 3.0.
Providers looking to learn more about ICD-10 and its impending transition are invited to attend the ICD-10 Basics webinar at 1:30 p.m. EDT on Aug. 22. The event is hosted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
