Visit the New ICD-10 Resource Center

With the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) implementation of ICD-10 starting on October 1, 2015, AAHKS has compiled several resources to help ease the transition. ICD-10 expands the number of codes from 16,000 to 68,000 from the previous iteration, and although claims will not be denied because of miscoding for a period of 12 months, this is only true if there is a valid ICD-10 code in the claim. No ICD-9 codes will be processed. Visit the AAHKS ICD-10 Resource Center.
