ICD-10 Codes in the Healthcare Field

ICD-10 codes are the newest and most updated version of coding we have in the United States since ICD-9 codes that were implemented in 1979. The update to the coding is meant to provide more specific and accurate documentation for diagnosis and patient procedures for everyone that is covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) and those who submit Medicare or Medicaid claims.
