    I do narrative ICD-9 coding in the lab where I work. I was thinking I had 2 years to prepare for ICD10's. Today my manager told me they are starting 5010's in our dept next year (2012). So I kind of freaked out as I was going to do the AAPC Anatomy and Physiology course and brush up and also the bootcamp. Now instead of 2 years I have 2 or 3 months? Anyone out there know what it is? I have no idea..... Thanks!

    the 5010 is the new electronic transaction for claim submission, it is mandatory compliance on Jan 1 2012. ICD-10 CM is still set for Oct 1 2013.

    Thanks for the info; so that means ICD-10 will start being used at that time? I guess I only have 2 months to get ready, wow.

    Pretty sure ICD 10 starts on Oct of next year, not in a few months

    5010 starts in January 2012. Unless you have something to do with programming you have nothing to worry about. ICD 10 starts Oct 2013

    No, the 5010 is in 2 months, ICD-10 CM is in 2 years.
