• Specialty-specific ICD-10 coding resources available

    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a new ICD-10 guide, Resources for Specialties and Selected Health Conditions and Services, aimed at helping physicians and coders properly code common health conditions through ICD-10.

    The guide deals with almost two dozen conditions, services, and specialties, including a section devoted to family medicine. Other sections discuss ICD-10 coding for abdominal pain, asthma, cardiology, diabetes, obesity, lab services, and even specific conditions like strep throat and being struck by a vehicle.

    The guide is part of CMS’s Roadto10.org ICD-10 educational initiative and has direct links to its clinical concept guides, interactive case studies, medical case studies, and webcasts.

    Family Practice Management has its own set of ICD-10 coding resources in the FPM Toolbox.
