ICD-10 Readiness

Dianne De La Mare

CMS has recently released a new MLN Connects video on ICD-10 Coding Basics to ensure that providers are ready to transition to ICD-10 on October 1, 2014. On the video, Sue Bowman from the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) provides a basic introduction to ICD-10 coding, and focuses on the similarities and differences between ICD-10 and ICD-9; ICD-10 code structure; and coding processes and examples. To receive notification of upcoming MLN Connects videos and calls and the latest Medicare program information on ICD-10, subscribe to the weekly MLN Connects™ Provider eNews. Also, visit the CMS ICD-10 website for the latest news and resources to help you prepare for the October 1, 2014, deadline.
