It’s that time of year again! Time for the ICD-10 CM code updates. The new codes will go into effect with 10/1/17 discharges. There are over 800 changes this year in ICD-10 CM alone! 350+ new codes have been added, 225+ codes revised and 142 codes deleted along with some updates to the Official Coding Guidelines. Quite a few new sub terms were added and changes to Excludes 1 and Excludes 2 notes made so you will want to read these when selecting your code.
