ICD-10 Updates for October 1, 2017
On April 14, 2017, CMS published proposed changes to ICD-10 for October 1, 2017, along with the proposed hospital inpatient prospective payment system rule.
Changes are modest, with seventy changes to eye codes including spelling corrections in the H02.051-H02.059 series. Expect additional degenerative myopia codes and replacement codes for several low-vision codes.
Tables containing changes can be found at: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-Service-Payment/AcuteInpatientPPS/FY2018-IPPS-Proposed-Rule-Home-Page-Items/FY2018-IPPS-Proposed-Rule-Tables.html?DLPage=1&DLEntries=10&DLSort=0&DLSortDir=ascending
Corcoran Consulting Group will continue to monitor the proposed changes and provide updates as they become available.
