The nation switched on October 1, 2015 from the ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding for medical diagnoses and inpatient hospital procedures. AOPA has partnered with the Coding Institute to provide an ICD-10 conversion tool to AOPA members. This free membership benefit allows you to quickly find a corresponding ICD-10 code(s) simply by typing in any ICD-9 code.
Also, the June issue of the O&P Almanac featured an article, “Prepare Now for the ICD-10 Transition” authored by AOPA Director of Coding and Reimbursement Services, Education, and Programming Joe McTernan, that may be helpful in understanding how the ICD 10 transition will apply to O&P.
You will need your AOPA member login from the primary location to access the converter. Please call 571/431-0876 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your login.
