Highlights of the ICD-10-PCS Coding Changes for FY 2017

Earlier this year, the ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee summarized the ICD-10-PCS updates in great detail when it released the final agenda. For fiscal year 2017, the number of additional PCS codes totals 3,827. There were also 12 code deletions and 491 code title revisions with most being in the Cardiovascular System.

Other highlights of the PCS code updates include:

  • Revised definitions for two Medical & Surgical Root Operation
  • Several Revised PCS Coding Guidelines
  • Changes in the Heart & Great Vessel, Upper & Lower Arteries & Lower Joint Body Systems
  • Expansion of codes that capture New Technology

This myriad of changes illustrates the continued efforts for increased specificity in healthcare.

“The service offered by iMedX is particularly valuable for me as the operator of a small business, in that on a day to day basis I do not have enough typing to warrant employing a full time secretary; particularly as I draft most documents myself, on-screen.”
“After less than 10 minutes of non-patronizing, clear setup instructions, I was up and running.”
