ICD-10 Updates

Each year, CMS makes minor changes to the ICD-10-CM code set. Changes are effective October 1 of the preceding year. For example, the 2020 ICD-10 changes are effective on October 1, 2019. In some cases, CMS adds new codes and retires others. In other cases, only the description associated with the code is changed.

The updated codes apply only to claims with a service date of October 1 or later. Claims with a service date of September 30 or earlier will continue to use the prior codes. Billers should familiarize themselves with the changes and verify that the correct codes are appearing on claims.
