Revised and New ICD10 Codes

October is a beautiful autumn month, when the weather seems to transition from hot to warm to cool. When the leaves start to fall off the trees and pumpkins are found in abundance.

In the healthcare industry it is also a time of change and transition. On October 1st, there will be deleted, revised and new ICD10 codes. Get familiar with them fast! Avoid unnecessary denials. October 1st also marks the last quarter of the year, so if you are participating with Meaningful Use you are in the home stretch. Be sure to review your reports and numbers so that you know exactly where you are.

Now is a good time to review the year.
Did you add on any services?
How did that add to your bottom line?
Did you open a new location or add a new provider?
How did that change your practice?

It’s important to check the "health" of your practice just as your patients are doing when they come to see you.
