ICD-10 Resources Available on MPCA Website
Friday, February 7, 2014
MPCA's website now includes a new ICD-10 webpage and online ICD-10 Resource Library.
The current ICD-9 code set will soon be replaced by the more detailed
ICD-10, with a deadline for the transition of October 1, 2014. This is a
major change requiring time, effort and preparation—all Health Centers
will be extensively impacted. There will be a substantial increase in
the number of codes (five times as many) that health care providers use
when coding a patient's diagnosis. Clinicians and all billing/coding
staff will need to learn when and how to use the new diagnosis codes to
submit accurate claims and ensure reimbursement stays on track.
working hard to assist Michigan Health Centers and MPCA members through
this transition. Please refer to these webpages for resources and
contact Phillip Bergquist or Brittany Beard with questions or suggested resources to add.
