NO ICD-9 UPDATES FOR 2012-2013
To enable greater focus on the transition to ICD-10, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has made no ICD-9 diagnosis code changes for 2012–2013. The FPM ICD-9 reference lists published last fall are still current and available for download. The implementation deadline for ICD-10 is October 2014. Look to FPM for continued updates and advice on the transition to ICD-10.
