ICD-10 Resources for Students

Important Update: On April 1, 2014, President Obama signed into law H.R. 4302. This bill, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, included language delaying the implementation of ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS by at least one year. Originally these code sets were scheduled to replace ICD-9-CM volumes 1, 2, and 3 on October 1, 2014. At this time the implementation date of ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS is not known. Updates will be posted here as they become available.


Overview

ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS are classification systems used for coding diagnoses, procedures and services provided by the U.S. health care system. On October 1, 2014, these code sets will replace ICD-9-CM volumes 1, 2 and 3. This is a major undertaking and has a significant impact on all aspects of health care, particularly all entities submitting electronic claims for reimbursement. It is very important that current and future health care professionals understand the two classification systems, how they are changing, and how to utilize them.
