Education and support from Legacy

 

ICD-10 implementation underway

With implementation of ICD-10 coming soon, check this site regularly for the latest updates.

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) declared that ICD-10 codes will be implemented on October 1, 2015. After this date, only ICD-10 code sets will be used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures. 

Legacy Health strives to keep our providers up-to-date on the latest ICD-10 information. We continue to monitor CMS’ position closely, and will adjust our approach as necessary to ensure physicians are ready for the October 1 transition. 

Training options

Continued medical education is an important part of Legacy Health’s commitment to providing quality, cost effective care to our community. To help solidify our physician’s ICD-10 knowledge base and ease the transition, Legacy is offering multiple ICD-10 training avenues to medical staff members. Click here for a full list of training opportunities.
