If you do, more power to you, you’re ahead of the game. For those of you who are just getting started or looking for a little refresher, we hope you’ve learned a thing or two about the basics of the new ICD-10 coding. Just a couple short months from now, all medical professionals will be facing the challenge of changing the way we’ve done coding for the last twenty years. It won’t be any easy adjustment but if you’ve taken the necessary steps to educate yourself, prepare for the transition and practice, you are going to be much farther ahead than those who fail to prepare.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1433777981949{border-right-width: 3px !important;border-bottom-width: 3px !important;border-left-width: 3px !important;padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;border-color: #c7252c !important;border-style: ridge !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1433972599651{margin-top: -20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1433971428857{padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;}”]At the root of preparing for ICD-10 is the understanding of how coding sets will change from ICD-9 to ICD-10. What’s the difference? Well, for one thing, we’re leaping from around 14,000 codes to nearly 70,000. That means a big adjustment in the details of how we code our diagnoses. To help you better understand ICD-10, we’ve broken down the coding structure into a simple guide.[/vc_column_text][vc_button title=”Click to Download: ICD-10 Coding 101 – Coding Structure” target=”_blank” color=”btn-inverse” icon=”none” size=”wpb_regularsize” href=””][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1433971546981{padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;}”]If you’re in the preparation phase or looking to start an implementation plan, you’re on the right track.
