Are you ready for the biggest change to coding in 30 years? The switch to ICD-10 happens on Oct. 1, 2015. Ensuring that you and your practice team are ready is critical as getting paid starting next month depends on how well you make the switch.

CSEPS has compiled links to the resources you need to help make this transition as smooth as possible.

Locally, Region VIII representatives are ready to help. The CMS ICD-10 Ombudsman William Rogers, MD, is available to address ICD-10 related issues at If the Ombudsman is unable to resolve your issue, please email Ceilly Robl or Tiffany Wedgeworth, your Region VIII ICD-10 contacts, at for their personal assistance. In addition, CMS has updated its ICD-10 FAQ with one revision and answered nine new questions that might arise during the transition.
