ICD-10 revenue neutrality: 9 ways to protect your cash flow
from Government Health IT
ICD-10 provides refinement to financial/reimbursement models; it will improve clinical specificity results in improvements to patient safety functions; and it will improve understanding of disease and costs and allows providers and others to improve on their delivery. The ICD-10 code sets are not a simple update of ICD-9. The ICD-10 code sets have fundamental changes in structure and concepts that make them very different from ICD-9, and payments based on ICD-10 must be within an understandable and acceptable variance for both payers and their trading partners.
