After many delays and countless admonitions to doctors and practice administrators to prepare, the coding system in this country will transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 next Thursday, Oct. 1. If your practice is not ready for the change, the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) will be hosting the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) at our Center for Leadership in Medicine tomorrow (Thursday, Sept. 24) for a two hour session to help you and your staff prepare for the changeover. Register here.
CMS has provided an infographic to help you understand where your practice should be at this point and to provide resources for any last minute preparations.
In North Carolina, Medicaid providers have ICD-10 resources available through NCTracks. Access that information.
