There were a couple questions that stick out in my mind that I didn't know the answer to and I'm wondering if anyone here knows.
1. What was the last day you could report ICD-9 codes for risk adjustment purposes? I guessed it was 1/31/16, but I don't know. Any thoughts?
2. What is the approved resource to update and clarify the use of ICD-10? It seems to easy to say CMS transmittal...although that was my answer. Options were also NCCI edits, AHA Coding Clinic (this was my 2nd guess) and Federal Register. I feel 75% confident it is CMS...but 25% thinks maybe it is AHA. ???

Thanks!

1) I dont know for sure. I would have guessed the submission period where DOS 1/1/15 - 9/30/15 was included as ICD-10 became effective 10/1/15

2) Coding Clinic is the definitive source for clarification on DX reporting.
