On October 1, 2015 the 30 year old ICD-9 codes you and your staff have become so familiar with were finally retired. We have now moved on to the new ICD-10 code set that was created in order to keep up with medical advancements and answer to the needs of health insurance companies.
With roughly 68,000 codes in comparison to the 13,000 in ICD-9, many healthcare providers are left with the time-consuming and costly struggle of learning the new codes. These ICD-10 changes include: expanded injury codes, combination diagnosis/symptom codes, additional sixth and seventh characters, subclassifications, and greater specificity in code assignment (just to name a few.)
