The Path is clear for ICD-10-CM

Yesterday 16th of April 2015, President Obama signed the Medicare Sustianable Growth Rate (SGR) reform bill, HR2 into law.  This will allow the restructring of Medicare payments to healthcare providers and it also paves the way for mandated ICD-10 implementation.

October 1, 2015 ICD-10 will replace ICD-9-CM code sets that are used by medical coders and payers to report diagnoses and procedures.  With the implementation of ICD-10, it will drastically change the way documentation and coding is done, if you havent already started preparing now is the time to formulate your ICD-10 implementation plan.
