PGM Billing, a leading integrated physician billing, practice management and revenue cycle management service provider, announces the launch of a series of free ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalks.
The ICD-10 crosswalks are available for more than a dozen specialties. They include some of the most frequently used ICD-9 codes converted to their ICD-10 equivalent(s). The specialty crosswalks available are as follows:
- Emergency Medicine
- Mental Health
- Orthopedics (upper and lower body)
- Otolaryngology (ENT)
- Pain Management
- Primary Care
On October 1, 2015, the U.S. healthcare system transitioned from ICD-9 to ICD-10.
"Healthcare providers throughout the country are struggling with the ICD-10 transition, so we at PGM wanted to provide some assistance," says Chris Saviano, VP of Business Development for PGM Billing. "Our ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalks will help providers improve their coding accuracy and become more comfortable with ICD-10. The launch of these crosswalks further demonstrates PGM's commitment to helping our clients succeed in this ever-changing, ever-challenging healthcare environment."
