ICD-10 is Here—Finally. What's All the Fuss?

Share this content:

After what seems like decades of starts and stops, ICD-10 went into effect for real Oct. 1. Contributors to Physician Assistant Forum were initially somewhere beyond skeptical of the new system. Many registered their suspicion that insurance companies will use the new system to delay, reduce, or deny payment. Others bemoaned the proliferation of codes (such as W56.22xA—struck by orca, initial encounter), though one suggested a new one for PTICDS—Post-Traumatic ICD Syndrome. The reality so far, happily, seems more benign.
