The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will host a national provider call on transitioning to the ICD-10 coding system on Nov. 5 at 1:30 p.m. ET. CMS experts will discuss ICD-10 implementation issues, opportunities for testing and resources available to help with the transition. To register, see the call notice. The Department of Health and Human Services in July issued a final rule establishing Oct. 1, 2015 as the date on which health care providers must include ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure codes on Medicare and other health care claims. The AHA has updated its ICD-10 Executive Action Guide that AHA member hospital and health system leaders can use to help with their transition to the new ICD-10 coding system.
