Provider Resources

On October 1, 2014, the health care industry will transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes for diagnoses and inpatient procedures.

This transition is going to change how you do business—from registration and referrals to superbills and software upgrades. But that change doesn’t have to be overwhelming. CMS has the following resources to help your practice prepare for the transition.

CMS Releases “Road to 10? Online Resource for Small Practices
