PGM Billing, a leading integrated physician billing, practice management and revenue cycle management service provider, announces the launch of a free ICD-10 code search engine.
The ICD-10 Codes Lookup Tool provides users with the ability to perform ICD-10 code searches to obtain the correct code and description. Users may search using either the complete or partial ICD-10 code as well as any number of keywords to describe the specified code.
This new tool is the second ICD-10 tool launched by PGM this year. PGM previously launched an ICD-10 Code Conversion Tool that allows user to easily convert ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes and vice versa by selecting the ICD conversion type followed by a user defined code.
ICD-10 implementation is scheduled for October 1, 2015.
“We are excited to add this new ICD-10 lookup tool to our rapidly growing list of free educational resources,” says Chris Saviano, VP of Business Development for PGM Billing. “The ICD-10 code conversion engine has been accessed by thousands of users since its launch just a few months ago, and many of our clients have told us how helpful it is with their preparation for the ICD-9 to ICD-10 transition. This new ICD-10 search tool will further assist in their efforts. The launch of the search engine demonstrates our ongoing commitment to doing anything we can to help our clients succeed in this challenging healthcare environment.”
In addition to the ICD-10 tools, PGM has also launched a HCPCS code search tool, CPT code search tool and a CPT code app in the past year. They joined PGM’s existing free educational resources, which include a healthcare blog and case studies.
