The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) set October 1, 2015, as the transition date for all HIPAA-covered entities to switch from ICD-9 to ICD-10. Providers are now required to submit claims using the appropriate ICD-10 codes. Understanding ICD-10 will help you better comply with current and future reimbursement requirements. Training and educational opportunities have been, and continue to be, available. AAPA welcomes you to utilize this website and the resources contained here to learn how the switch to ICD-10 may affect you, and what you can do to adapt.
