Many of the coders I talk to are actually looking forward to ICD10, which offers much more specificity, more combination codes, etc. The one thing I've heard the most is we might have to get a full-page magnifier to read them if we have a book (as opposed to on-line).
I've been in the healthcare field a long time, and remember the physicians saying they'd retire when we switched from the old office and hospital visit codes to the E/M codes - most of them stayed in practice for quite some time.
I'm not saying that the changes won't be a lot to deal with - but we have a lot of time to prepare.
