2017 ICD10 Updates

As occurs every October 1 there are additions and deletions to the ICD10 code set.

This year is no different though the codes updating that relate to acupuncture claims are very small if at all when related to common codes. The only common code that updated is lumbar spinal stenosis that now differentiates to indicate with or without neurogenic claudication.

This list compromises the codes most likely to affect acupuncture claims. As always The Digital Coding site allows you to search for updates via a key word search 0-1-2017 for this year (note last year’s changes can be viewed with a search of 10-1-2016 and are included in this list also)

The following codes are being added 10-1-2017 and also 10-1-2016. This list compromises the codes most likely to affect acupuncture claims.

Note the codes in bold will be deleted after 10-1-2017 or 10-1-2016 Note the date of service will determine the code. Visits on or after 10-1-2016 require the updated codes.
