Medicare ICD-10 Flexibilities expire October 1, 2016

 

ICD-10 was implemented, in part, because of the higher degree of detail that it allows to describe the services provided. Providers are required to accurately code to reflect the clinical documentation with as much specificity as possible, as per the required coding guidelines.

Avoid unspecified ICD-10 codes whenever documentation supports a more detailed code. The coding should always align with the clinical documentation.
