ASCO Resources for Transitioning to ICD-10


Get Permission

ASCO has developed resources to educate and assist oncology practices in transitioning to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) 10th Edition of its International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) coding system. Practices are encouraged to prepare for the transition before the October 1, 2014, deadline.  

On that date, ICD-10 will fully replace ICD-9 and providers may no longer bill with ICD-9 codes. Therefore, it is important to take the time to educate oneself about ICD-10 and determine what impact it will have on your practice. ASCO resources are available on its online resource center for transitioning to ICD-10, which is available at http://www.asco.org/practice-research/icd-10. In addition, CMS has developed an online ICD-10 implementation guide that provides step-by-step guidance on how to transition to ICD-10. To access the webpage, please visit http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD10/index.html?redirect=/icd10.

If you have any questions regarding ICD-10, please contact ASCO via email at billingandcoding
