Obtain ICD-10 coding books

Do you have the necessary technical resources in your library to help ensure compliance with standards mandated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)?

As of the compliance date of Oct. 1, 2013, ICD-10 codes must be used on all HIPAA-standard transactions. This will include outpatient claims with dates of service and inpatient claims with dates of discharge on and after Oct. 1, 2013. If you do not use ICD-10 codes as required, your claims may be rejected.

It’s not too soon to start preparing for the changeover to use ICD-10 codes! To purchase ICD-10 coding books, you can conduct an Internet search for vendors that offer electronic coding, billing and reimbursement products and training resources.
