CMS and the AMA have agreed to offer physician practices a grace period on code specificity of ICD-10 for the first year. The link to the announcement from the AMA is below, and you’ll notice it mentions “family” of codes. ICD-10 is divided into categories and subcategories. I’m not sure how the CMS Contractors will interpret “family.”
If I see any clarification or wise words from other consultants, I’ll add them here.
