I located this information on the CMS website and wanted to share. It will clarify what needs to be completed with the transition from ICD 9 to ICD 10.

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—so it is important to be prepared!

Understanding the Basics
This fact sheets will introduce you to ICD-10, explain why it’s necessary, and give you the information you’ll need to get started on your transition. Please see the links below for FAQs:
