News: FY 2020 ICD-10-CM code update released

CDI Strategies - Volume 13, Issue 28

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) posted the fiscal year (FY) 2020 ICD-10-CM final code changes last week. There were no changes to the proposed list of 273 new, 30 revised and 21 invalidated codes that were released in the proposed inpatient hospital prospective payment system rule

The tabular addendum, however, shows that practices and payers will have to understand and incorporate considerably more coding instructions when the update takes effect on October 1, 2019, Revenue Cycle Advisor reported.

The CDC released 23 files for the final FY 2020 ICD-10-CM code set. The full list of updates can be found here and the tabular addenda can be found here.
