Academy develops ICD-10 FAQs

June 2016 - Vol. 35, No. 05

ICD-10 has been in effect as of October 1, 2015. The Academy is dedicated to helping our Members through the ongoing transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10. Based on Member inquiries the Health Policy Team received, the following two ICD-10 FAQs were developed in conjunction with the AAPC.

  • General ICD-10 FAQ: questions on resources for the ICD-10 transition
  • ICD-10 Private Payer FAQ: questions on how private payers are handling the ICD-10 transition

These FAQs were presented at the Spring Leadership Forum this past March, and are also available online on the Academy’s website at
