Joint AMA & CMS-Revised CMS Guidance on ICD 10 Implementation

CMS has revised their FAQs on ICD 10 coding  after extensive dialogue with AMA Advocacy staff (click here to review document).  The revisions were posted on the CMS website on 7/31 and are consistent with the original announcement regarding flexibility when the right “ family of codes” are submitted. Revisions were made to questions 3 and 5.    We are also working with CMS to develop a version of the FAQs that is specifically geared for physicians (attached document is aimed at multiple audiences—Medicare contractors, CMS regional offices) and to be sure that a  teleconference planned for late August reflects the initial joint announcement issued on July 6.
