Medical Coding - ICD-10

The Medical Coding Profession - A Change to ICD-10

Effective October 2015, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will require that the standard ICD-9 code sets, which are used in medical billing and coding to report health care diagnoses and procedures, be replaced by ICD-10.
