These resources help with ICD-10 compliance

If you missed Medical Office Manager’s webinar, “10 Things You Must Know About ICD-10,” you definitely want to review the webinar recording and slides, available here.

Coding expert Judy Monestime shared information during the presentation that will help your practice meet the October 1, 2015 deadline, and provide assistance as you continue to transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10.

In addition, you’ll want to check out these resources from the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) and keep them handy:

  • CMS Letter to Providers About ICD-10 Readiness

CMS has issued letters to Medicare Fee-for-Service providers emphasizing the importance of readiness for ICD-10 and reminding them of the resources available from CMS and other organizations to get ready.

  • Road to 10: CMS Online Tool for Small Practices

Jump start your ICD-10 transition with Road to 10, an online resource built with input from providers in small practices.

“Road to 10” includes specialty references and helps providers build ICD-10 action plans tailored for their practice needs.

  • CMS ICD-10 Quick Start Guide

The ICD-10 Quick Start Guide outlines five steps health care professionals should take to prepare for ICD-10 by the October 1, 2015 compliance date.

Finally, Monestime shared an important resource that is worth highlighting again here:

  • AAPC ICD-10 Code Translator

This tool allows you to map the expansion of ICD-9 codes to ICD-10 codes, and to check ICD-10 codes against ICD-9 codes. Intended as a reference tool, it is not a substitute for training. Please see the disclaimer at the AAPC website.
