The proposed ICD-10 code changes — released with the FY2025 Hospital Inpatient PPS (IPPS) proposed rule on April 10 –  include three new codes to better track the severity of patients with hypoglycemia.
The proposed rule includes 252 new codes, 13 revised code descriptors and 36 codes deemed invalid. If finalized, these changes would take effect Oct. 1.
The CDC posted updated FY2024 ICD-10-CM guidelines on Monday, Jan. 22, which included a sequencing update for sepsis due to postprocedural infection.
Take a glimpse at the hundreds of CPT coding updates coming in 2024 to prepare your coding and billing staff for a successful turn of the calendar. You’ll find new codes, as well as code revisions, spread throughout the CPT manual, in addition to important guideline updates.
Also, nearly 50 codes are on the chopping block. All coding updates, outside of a separately announced COVID vaccine consolidation that takes effect Nov. 1, 2023, will be effective Jan. 1, 2024.
The initial proposals for CY 2024 are out, and medical groups should brace for rate cuts: CMS is floating a net 3.4% reduction to the Medicare Part B conversion factor.
The agency also provided a sneak peek of an array of new codes, including the return of add-on office visit code G2211, major quality-reporting updates and separate coding opportunities for “community health integration services,” among other changes, according to the proposed 2024 Medicare physician fee schedule released today.
Prepare for several hundred new ICD-10-CM codes now finalized to take effect Oct. 1. On June 16, CMS announced the additions of 395 new diagnosis codes, 25 deletions to the ICD-10-CM code set and 13 revisions. In addition, there are hundreds of changes to tabular instructions added in the addenda for the FY 2024 code set.
