As the implementation deadline for ICD-10 approaches, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine is expanding its FAQs related to the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10. In August, six new FAQs were added to the AASM website addressing general questions about ICD-10 implementation. This week, an additional 13 FAQs were added to address disease-specific coding questions. You can access the ICD-10 FAQs through the AASM Coding FAQs webpage.
The AASM has a number of other resources available to help you with your ICD-10 transition. Visit the online store for a sleep medicine code crosswalk and a comorbid code crosswalk. The AASM Coding Education Program (ACEP) also includes a module about ICD-10.
