With the upcoming mandatory implementation of ICD-10 on Oct. 1, 2015, there will be a dramatic change in the number of diagnosis codes available, and anesthesia coders will need to be ready. While you'll have more specific codes to report some conditions, such as spondylolysis based on exact condition and spinal location and deep vein thrombosis based on site, you may not have to worry as much about other diagnoses. For instance, when it comes to your provider diagnosing intracranial or intraspinal abscess, you'll have a simpler transition. After October 1, there will be no "grace" period and ill-equipped and unprepared practices are likely to suffer negative financial consequences. Don't let this happen to you. Prepare now - before it's too late. Rely on the Anesthesia ICD-10 Handbook 2015 for step-by-step, precise, and definitive guidance on the new ICD-10 codes for anesthesia, the ICD-10 guidelines, GEMs, the training process, and the documentation changes you need to start implementing now. Take a look at some of the topics we have included in this must-have resource: 2 new H codes will replace 366.16. Pain management coders, prepare for more acquired spondylolysis options. C-section diagnosis 669.71 becomes O82 with ICD-10. Expand your cubital tunnel syndrome options with ICD-10. G89 family will bring chronic, acute pain options. Watch for new fibromyalgia diagnosis choice. Prepare for more detailed DVT code choices with I82.4-. New K38 choices will expand appendicitis specificity. 455 to I84 diagnosis shift means 2 more digits. Prepare for 'greater detail' pneumothorax codes. Prepare now to separate 'burns' from 'corrosions.' Watch for presence of heart failure under new I11.- codes. Breast neoplasms will shift from 174-175 to C50.
