As you know, a single ICD-9 does not always map to a single ICD-10 code, unless you want to provide yourself with a huge list of unspecified codes. You can use the GEMS as a start, but you have to look at I-10 and determine which codes are going to now fill into the "other specified" categories of ICD-9. The GEMS won't give you that detail. Additionally, the I-10 codes specify laterality, meaning there's at least two additional codes for each I-9.
I am not working for a payer, but I am doing analysis of our EMR's documentation ability to meet the expanded ICD-10 criteria, and it's one whopping project.
