The switch from ICD-9-CM (International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification) to ICD-10-CM (10th Revision, Clinical Modification) is about 40 days away.

If you currently use ICD-9 codes and have not begun preparing for the October 1, 2015, deadline, you must start now! All claims submitted to health insurance providers—including Medicare and Medicaid—for audiology and speech-language pathology services provided on or after October 1 will be returned unpaid if they do not contain ICD-10-CM codes.
