Updates to ICD-10 and Official Coding Guidelines Coming Soon
On October 1, 2016, the 2017 edition of the ICD-10 Official Coding Guidelines will become effective. Providers, coders and billers need to be knowledgeable with these changes as there is no grace period. Using codes that are deleted or changed will impact claims and risk adjustment. Read more about what this means to you, from PACE Partner Capstone Performance Systems' CEO Dr. Richard Schamp.
We hope you enjoy our new newsletter format. We're going to continue to bring you news of interest to the PACE community, in a easier to read format. We're always interested in your feedback, so let us know what you think.
