    Hi

    Can any one explain, If I have done certification CPC in 2009, Is it necessary to get it certification again after ICD 10 that is in 2013. Do I need to write exam again to get certificate.

  2. Default ICD 10 certification Help!!!!

    Would like to see AAPC come out with a formal response similar to AHIMA's response that was posted last evening. https://newsletters.ahima.org/newsle...2_special.html
    In essence, keep on moving forward to ICD10. The healthcare industry and many providers are already deep into the movement towards ICD10.

  4. Default UB04 claim form
    Does anyone happen to know where I can get a claim form (If anyone is currently using one) as an example to show how ICD9 is changing to ICD9? I just want to use one as an example.

  5. Default ICD-10 - Final Draft
    Has anyone heard or read whether the 2012 Draft will be frozen and not updated until after implementation of ICD-10? Also, is the same thing true of ICD-9? I had heard that they would freeze both books (no updates) at some point....have heard both 2012 versions and 2013 versions. So, anybody know which is correct?

    it is post on the CDC data warehouse homepage for ICD 9 and 10 that there is in place as of this year a "partial" freeze on both code sets. Unless it is in the best interest of the public to creat new or change any exiting codes there will be no new codes until Oct 1 2014, after that only ICD-10 Cm will be udated annually or bi annually as needed, ICD-9 CM will never be updated again.
