October 1 is behind us. The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition, Clinical Modification/Procedure Coding System (ICD-10-CM/PCS) is the new standard of the land. It was mandated that all healthcare providers in the United States comply with exclusive utilization of the ICD-10 coding system as of October 1, 2015.
Now that ICD-10 has become a reality, oncology practices are still going to face uncertain income, unready payers, delays in payment, and possible take-backs of paid monies following audits after the fact.
Stakeholders in the healthcare system are making an effort to ensure that people are not squeezed out of the practice of medicine by insufficient time and support to comply with ICD-10.
