IS YOUR SUPERBILL best configured FOR ICD-10?
With ICD-10 now in effect, it is critical that you successfully handle the added complexity when using ICD-10-CM. If not using edgeMED's EHR or another, many physician practices use a superbill to account for the services rendered (CPT codes) and patients' diagnosis (ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes). These forms must be updated on a regular basis to reflect any code changes. With ICD-10, each ICD-9 code on an existing superbill will need to be converted to the related ICD-10 code.
There is not always a 1:1 match when translating an ICD-9 code to an ICD-10 code. In fact, due to the greater specificity in most areas of ICD-10, there could be several ICD-10 codes that map back to just one ICD-9 code.
edgeMED's ICD-10 compliant practice management software contains the mappings of ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes, called the General Equivalence Mappings (GEMs). This tool is helpful for practices to compare the commonly used ICD-9 codes to the related ICD-10 codes. If your Practice is using a paper superbill, you will need to re-evaluate and re-design it in order to accommodate the ICD-10 diagnoses codes your practice will commonly utilize.
ICD-10 Code Translator tool is provided by the AAPC and is provided on this website for demonstration purposes only. This tool is based on the General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) files published by CMS, and is not intended to be used as an ICD-10 conversion, ICD-10 mapping, or ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalk tool. Keep in mind that while many codes in ICD-9-CM map directly to codes in ICD-10, in some cases, a clinical analysis may be required to determine which code or codes should be selected for your mapping. Always review mapping results before applying.
