What in the heck is ICD-10 and what do I have to do about it?

About ICD-10

Unless you are in a profession where you are are reporting a medical diagnosis or an inpatient procedure, you will not be affected by ICD-10.

If you are a doctor and this information is for you, which means you are covered by HIPAA, please listen up and be informed:


On October 1, 2014, the ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets.

The transition to ICD-10 is required for everyone covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA). Please note, the change to ICD-10 does not affect CPT coding for outpatient procedures and physician services.
