6 key differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10
from Physician's Practice
If you've been preparing for implementation of the new ICD-10 coding system (You have been, right? Of course you have.) then you know that the new codes are very different from the ICD-9 codes. It's not just a matter of a new numbering system. It is, as CMS puts it, "a leap in how we define care." If getting ready to take that leap has been driving you batty, you can take heart in knowing that the changes will ultimately benefit you as a physician, not only in helping you provide better documentation, but in getting paid for what you do.
