ICD-10-CM Coding Update

Beginning October 1, 2019, more than 300 ICD-10-CM code changes will go into effect for patient encounters occurring from 10/1/19 through 9/30/20, impacting numerous specialties. Don’t let improperly coded claims put a choke hold on your revenue - gain the facts on the code changes in this ICD-10-CM update program.

Review details on the new 2020 codes for closed and open fractures of the orbital wall surrounding the eye, deep tissue injuries and atrial fibrillation. Codes for phlebitis and thrombophlebitis will allow more specific coding for laterality and location. New codes to report chronic embolism and thrombosis will be selected based on laterality.

New for 2020 include T codes for poisoning, adverse effects or underdosing of multiple unspecified drugs, medicaments and biological substances divided into four causes: accidental, intentional, assault and undetermined. Codes for injuries sustained during a legal intervention will be introduced this year, as well as codes for heatstroke and sunstroke. Additions to Z codes will address factors influencing health status and contact with health services including a new code for latent tuberculosis.
