Under the final ICD-10 rule, all healthcare providers will utilize ICD-10-CM to code diagnoses beginning October 1, 2013. For procedure coding under the final ICD-10 rule, physicians and all healthcare providers other than inpatient hospitals will continue to use the current procedure coding standard: Current Procedural Terminology, 4th Edition (CPT-4) and the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS). Inpatient hospital services procedures will be coded using ICD-10-PCS codes, which provide facility related procedure codes suitable to inpatient environments.
