The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ website is now updated with the 2011 versions of the ICD-10 crosswalk files. As the US healthcare world transitions from ICD-9 to ICD-10 for medical diagnosis and inpatient procedure coding, crosswalk files will be a real key for success.
To spotlight just how large this transition is going to be, see the small snapshot of changes from 2009 to 2010:
New codes added: 1, 982
Codes deleted: 983
Revised codes: 1,029
