  3. Thousands of New ICD-10 Codes Slated for October Release

    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have given the green light to adding 3,651 ICD-10 hospital inpatient procedure codes and about 1,900 ICD-10 diagnosis codes, beginning in fiscal year 2017.

    According to CMS, the coding update will be implemented on Oct. 1, 2016. The agency attributes the large number of new codes to a partial freeze on updates to the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10 PCS codes that existed prior to the Oct. 1, 2015, ICD-10 transition deadline and which has now been lifted.

    Most of these new codes are focused on surgical procedures and, for the most part, the changes should have minimal impact on providers, said Richard Morris, CIO for Alpha II, a software vendor. However, he sees the additions of codes as a lot for providers to assimilate.

    “While this is a major change, it still should be fairly painless to providers depending on where these codes are within their code set,” he added. “To ensure they are ready, providers will want to ensure that their practice management systems, EHR systems, and clearinghouses are prepared and up to speed with these new changes.”
