The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) has put together a robust collection of information and resources to designed to help practicing allergists/immunologists convert from the ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM system on October 1, 2015.
As the AAAAI notes, if your practice performs allergy billing and coding, the conversion from ICD-9 to ICD-10 will be rather seamless for some diagnoses, and more complicated for others, making these resources extremely valuable to help ensure proper coding and billing.
Here are links to the AAAAI’s resources, all of which are in downloadable PDF format:
- Asthma Codes for ICD-10
- Contact Dermatitis Codes for ICD-10
- FPIES Codes for ICD-10
- Immunodeficiencies Disease Codes for ICD-10
- Insect Venom Codes for ICD-10
- Reporting Diseases of the Respiratory System (J00-J99) in ICD-10-CM
- Rhinitis Codes for ICD-10
- Sinusitis Codes for ICD-10
- Urticaria Codes for ICD-10
