Important ICD-10 Update Starts October 1st, 2016 – Is Your Practice Informed & Prepared?

By: Teri Thurston, Billing & Coding Manager
On October 1, 2016, a large number of new ICD-10 codes will go into effect allowing a greater degree of specificity for many conditions that eye care providers frequently manage.
As your PECAA Billing and Coding resource, I find it important to share the effects this will have on your practice. I am pleased to share a short video and document, provided by our Premier Vendor Partner, RevolutionEHR that I found to be valuable.
Dr. Brett Paepke, Director of ECP Services of RevolutionEHR gives an excellent review of the new diagnostic codes. It will be important to be familiar with the new code changes on October 1st to avoid claim denials and ensure proper documentation.
I hope you find value in the education provided to prepare for these changes. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out directly to me by email at or phone 503.670.9200.
