Featured Resource: ICD-10 Code Translator

The ICD-10 code online translator tool allows you to compare ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes. The number of codes are expanding from 17,000 (ICD-9) to approximately 141,000 ICD-10 codes, and this free online tool can help you map that expansion. (Note: this tool only converts ICD-10-CM codes, not ICD-10-PCS).
For a more comprehensive tool, AAPC Coder contains a cross reference tool for all ICD-9-CM codes, along with an entire suite of coding and reimbursement tools that enables coders to maximize their efficiency and compliance (subscription required, but 14-day free trial offered).
