ICD 10

Physician Orders for Lab, Radiology Services, and Other Services after ICD-10 Implementation

CMS is not requiring the ordering provider to rewrite the original order with the appropriate ICD-10 code for lab, radiology services, or any other services after ICD-10 implementation on October 1, 2015, including Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS).
Products and services that require a diagnosis code on the order will use ICD-9-CM codes if written prior to October 1, 2015. If the order is for a repetitive service that will continue to be delivered and billed after October 1, 2015, providers have the option to use the General Equivalence Mappings (GEMs) posted on the 2016 ICD-10-CM and GEMs web page to translate the ICD-9-CM codes on the original order into ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes.
