2015 ICD-10 Files Available on CMS Website

The 2015 ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS files are now available on the CMS website. At the recent ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting it was announced that there are no new ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM, or ICD-10-PCS codes added for 2015. There were some changes to the ICD-10-CM guidelines made. The guidelines contain a few changes, including sepsis, and 7th character clarifications where applicable. The links also have the GEMs for both ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS, the code tables, the Present on Admission (POS) exempt list, and much more. Take time to review all of the information available.

    Please expound on the changes to the I-10 guidelines that deal with sepsis. There is nothing in red (indicating a change) in the sepsis sections. Thank you!
