ICD-10 implementationICD-10-CM Diagnosis Codes for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology

Preparing for Implementation

Note: On April 1, 2014, President Obama signed into law the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014. This law included a provision that delays the implementation of ICD-10 from October 1, 2014 to October 1, 2015.

Beginning October 1, 2015, you will be required to use the new ICD-10-CM (International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification) system, which will replace the current ICD-9-CM (9th Revision). ASHA has developed the following resources to help audiologists and speech-language pathologists prepare for the implementation deadline. Preparing now will help you avoid potential reimbursement issues.

The codes in ICD-10 are not valid for any purpose or use in the United States until October 1, 2015.
