ICD-10 Version 4.0 - FY2020 Update Required

Every so often a computer will need to update itself; for many of us this is a bit of a hassle. We may be at the start of our workday, ready to begin the latest project when that update screen pops up; or maybe it’s the end of the day and we are ready to go but we can’t shut down our computer before the update is finished. Although these updates may be time consuming and frustrating, they are very important. Updates contain important changes to improve the performance, stability and security of the applications that run on a computer. Installing them ensures that your software continues to run safely and efficiently. Updates in code sets work in much the same way; it may be frustrating that every year we have to update our knowledge, but these updates are meant to improve upon how we report the patient overall picture of health. October 1, 2019 will mark the fourth update to the ICD-10-CM code set; and whether you’re a coder, a provider, payer, or consultant these new code changes will impact you. There will be a total of 72,184 ICD-10-CM codes for fiscal year 2020 compared to 71,932 for fiscal year 2019. There have been 273 codes added, as well as, 21 deleted and 30 revised. In this session we’ll examine those changes and help update you on the ICD-10 CM code set.
