CMS Continues to Clarify ICD-10 Flexibility Guidance
CMS’ initial ICD-10 flexibility guidance published July 6, 2015 has now been republished with clarifications not once, but twice. Additional edits were made to the guidance document on July 31, 2015. The revisions provide further definition on “What is a valid code?” and what is meant by the reference “family of codes”.
The complete revised clarification can be found at : https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD10/Clarifying-Questions-and-Answers-Related-to-the-July-6-2015-CMS-AMA-Joint-Announcement.pdf
The countdown to ICD-10 is 36 days until implementation! Are you ready?!
