CMS to Explain New PCS Section X June 18
By Brad Ericson, MPC, CPC, COSC
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) group that develops and maintains ICD-10, the Coordination and Maintenance Committee, has been talking about adding an additional section of tables to ICD-10-PCS to document emerging technology. The dramatically named Section X will impact facility procedural coding. CMS plans to talk about it during a National Provider Call, June 18.
Registration for this call is limited, and it is expected to discuss other aspects of ICD-10, as well, including an implementation update, preparation strategies, a testing update, and provider resources. The presentation for this call will be posted at least one day in advance of the call on the MLN Connects National Provider Calls and Events web page.
