ICD-10 Updates Coming Oct. 1

Doctors of chiropractic should be aware that there are some significant updates regarding ICD-10 that go into effect Oct. 1 due to the partial code freeze being lifted. Of particular interest to DCs is the addition of numerous injury codes (chapter 19), musculoskeletal codes (chapter 13), and clarifications on “Excludes” notes and laterality. Doctors should review the 2017 ICD-10-CM Guidelines to familiarize themselves with the changes and make sure that all ICD-10 reference material is up to date.
