The Oct. 1 implementation date for new medical condition and procedure codes is on track following successful testing of the new system. Are you ready?
“The International Classification of Diseases” establishes standardized codes—widely used for billing—for medical conditions and procedures. Although it has been postponed several times, the change from the ninth revision to the 10th revision is likely to happen in five months.
All health care providers must use ICD-9 for services provided before Oct. 1, and ICD-10 for services provided on or after Oct. 1.
Only the date services are provided—not the date the claim is submitted—is relevant. These rules apply to all health care providers, not just those submitting claims to CMS for Medicare or Medicaid.
Are You Prepared?

Make sure you’re going to be ready for the new codes on Oct. 1. For tips, read “Get Ready for ICD-10.”
