The ICD-9 codes for 2010 took effect on October 1 and may want some help remembering the codes you use frequently. We created this fun and handy coding cube template to help you remember some of the new codes that pediatric offices will use regularly.
Each of the six sides of this cube contain coding tips pertaining to recent ICD-9 code changes, including new lab/screening V-codes, new flu codes for avian and H1N1 influenza diagnoses, the addition of a fifth digit for feeding problems in newborns, and more.
Download the template, and create your own coding cube for quick reminders! Simply, cut out the outline, fold the template on the dark lines, and use glue or tape to attach the tabs to their adjoining sides. When its finished, your cube will look like the one in the picture above.
If you're looking more a more complete listing of important ICD-9 code updates of particular interest to pediatric offices, you can download the full handout provided to attendees of our recent Weblab, "Prepare Your Practice for 2010 ICD-9 Updates."
