Get Ready for ICD-10

As mandated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the 9th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and related health problems (ICD-9) must be updated to the 10th revision (ICD-10). The required deadline for the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 is currently scheduled as October 1, 2015.

The Academy encourages continued preparation for the October 1, 2015 implementation deadline. Below are some Academy developed and external resources to assist you with preparing for this important impending transition.

Title: 
Sample ICD-10 Superbill For Otolaryngology (Updated)
Body: 

The Academy is pleased to announce that we have updated the sample ICD-10 superbill with over 120 additional ICD-10 codes relevant to otolaryngology and a new additional version with ICD-10 codes listed by anatomic / disease area. The Academy issues a sincere thanks to all Board of Governors (BOG) regional representatives who provided valuable input for these revised superbills:

  1. A word format sample ENT superbill with ICD-10 Codes listed alphanumerically (3/30/2015)
  2. A word format sample ENT superbill with ICD-10 Codes listed anatomically (3/30/2015)
  3. An excel format sample alphanumeric list of ENT ICD-10 Codes (4/8/2015)

These sample ICD-10 superbills are designed to assist otolaryngology practices in quickly completing and submitting procedure(s) and diagnosis(s) codes from a patient visit for reimbursement. They are generally customized for an otolaryngology office and contains fields for patient information, the most common CPT (procedure) and ICD-10-CM (diagnostic) codes used by that office. Both are designed to be customizable by users according to frequently billed procedures and associated diagnostic codes used in their office. These superbills are designed solely as an exercise in demonstrating the process of transitioning to the new ICD-10-CM coding system. They do not represent an endorsement by the Academy of the use of superbills or either particular superbill format.
