New Study: Cost of ICD-10 Conversion Much Lower than Estimated

A study published in the Journal of AHIMA presents new data on the cost of ICD-10 conversion for small physician practices. After evaluating training, code books, end to end testing, super bill conversion, and other elements, the study determined costs ranged from $1,960 – $5,900, which is dramatically lower than initially estimated.

    I believe that if the cost was free, there would still be providers that would find some kind of reason for not wanting to move forward with the ICD-10 transition and think that the move to ICD-11 would be much easier. Whoever told them that must not have been a coder……

  2. The new estimation seems much lower and I’m wondering if there is a to do`s check list for ICD 10 conversion and where to find the resources and training needed to convert a small clinic to ICD 10.
