Identical ICD9 & ICD10 codes and Resolution for MIK

Message from GE Healthcare:

On July 15th we informed you about a list of duplicate diagnosis codes that has been posted to the CMS website. This small number of diagnosis codes within the ICD-10 code set have the same letter and number combination as an existing ICD-9 code but correspond to a different description. Under certain circumstances, the Centricity Practice Solution Practice Management module is unable to determine whether the ICD-9 or ICD-10 description is appropriate without additional information. Please review our communication from July 15th for further details.

As the transition date for ICD-10 approaches, we have important updates to share regarding resolutions to this issue and actions you should take to begin using these ICD-10 codes. Please read this communication from Peter Kinhan for details.
