Title: ICD 10 Coding Implementation ?
Post by: Ango_mark03 on September 18, 2013, 05:24:30 AM
Will medical practices face a shortage of credentialed experienced coders after the implementation of ICD 10?

If they are experienced and they spend a bit of time to get familiar with the new guidelines, there should not be a problem.  IMO

Here are some helps.  There are others if you search for them.

2013 datafile of ICD-10 codes.  Make your own searchable MS Access database.

The 2014 revisions have just been released, but I could not find a downloadable file for them like the one above for 2013 revisions.
