On June 6, 2023, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services published the annual FY 2024 code updates. So, a quick switch was made, and this blog will talk about code updates.
Overall, code updates for FY2024 appear to be on the small side, with significant changes made in External Causes of Morbidity and Status codes (go figure). If a specific Chapter of the code set is not mentioned, no addition, deletions, or revisions were made.
Keep in mind that documentation relating to Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting has yet to be released. That clarification will come later.
Stay in touch with CSI for further information and education related to both the Official Guidelines and Code Updates. We would love to assist you in training your coders! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
