What is ICD-10 Compliance?
All medical practices in the United States utilize International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes with medical billing software to ensure that everyone is using the same diagnostic codes to process patients’ claims.

Initially the United States was slated to implement ICD-10 by 2014, but this deadline has been extended by a year to make the transition easier.
The current code set, ICD-9, is incapable of accommodating approximately 120,000 new codes which are organized into different categories and subcategories.
