Message from SCAPTA Chair regarding ICD-10

from SCAPTA

ICD-10 is officially here. Even if you work in a hospital or setting that has professional coders, you need to understand the ICD-10 coding system in order to document effectively so that the coders can get the details required for ICD-10 codes. Without the correct diagnosis codes on your claims, payment may be denied or delayed. Below are some great professional resources for you to access if you still need help implementing your ICD-10 plan.

Here are some resources that may prove useful in preparation for the change.
