    I have been saying for a couple years that this transition will not be as difficult as some may have been led to believe. But, let’s face it, many groups and organizations have hyped the change (Over 70,000 codes! Costs will be $60,000.00 or more for a small practice! Documentation demands will multiply exponentially!) in order to sell their coding and documentation tools to the medical community. Now that the change is imminent, I think practices will see that it won’t be a cataclysmic event, and that with some careful planning the transition will not be a huge burden. I support the change, and think that it will improve documentation, however, I do not believe it will improve reimbursements, or particularly improve patient outcomes as I’ve recently read in some articles and publications.

    Have there been any change/updates to the ICD-10 code set? Is the 2014 draft copy current?
