The transition to ICD-10-CM (International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification) will occur in less than a year and a half. ASHA has developed a web-based mapping tool and other resources to help audiologists and speech-language pathologists prepare for the October 1, 2014, implementation deadline.
The following resources are now available on ASHA's ICD-10 webpage:
- ICD-9 to ICD-10 Mapping Tool: Enter an ICD-9 code and this web-based tool will provide a mapping to the appropriate ICD-10 code(s).
- ICD-9 to ICD-10 Mapping Spreadsheets: References are provided for those who want to view audiology or speech-language pathology related mappings in one discipline-specific list.
- ICD-10 Code Lists: Audiology and speech-language pathology related disorders will be culled from approximately 68,000 ICD-10 codes into manageable, discipline-specific lists.
All resources developed by ASHA are tailored to the needs of audiologists and speech-language pathologists and are based on extensive analysis by ASHA staff.
Beginning October 1, 2014, providers will be required to use the new ICD-10 system, which will replace the current ICD-9 (International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision). The new ICD-10 will include the ICD-10-CM (clinical modification) for diagnosis codes and the ICD-10-PCS (procedure coding system) for inpatient hospital procedures. ASHA's resources focus on the clinical modification version.
