ICD-10 Resource Center
The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has mandated the replacement of the ICD-9 code sets used by physicians and other health-care professionals, facilities, medical coders and billers to report health-care diagnoses and inpatient procedures with ICD-10 code sets, effective Oct. 1, 2014.
The AGA Institute has collaborated with leading organizations to provide you with various resources to help ensure your smooth transition to ICD-10.
ICD-10 Top 50 Gastroenterology CM Codes Translation Guides
In collaboration with Rhonda Buckholtz, vice president of ICD-10 education and training at AAPC, AGA has developed easy to use translation guides for the top 50 most used GI-related diagnostic codes — one ranked alphabetically by disease state and the other ranked numerically by ICD-9-CM code. The guides are free to AGA members but you must login to view and download. Nonmembers can purchase either version of the translation guide for $25 each.
