Updated ICD-9 Codes go into effect October 1, 2010. Claims submitted after this date with invalid codes will not be processed by carriers.
This may also be the time to start reviewing the changes we’ll encounter with ICD-10 implementation in 2013. It’s never too early to start reviewing the impact of these new codes.
