2018 codes

I am being requested by our biller to recode charts that were coded prior to 10/1/17 with the codes that because effective on that date. For example a chart with a cert period 9/1 -10/31 she is wanting me to change the codes to the ones that came into use on 10/1 and take out the ones that were retired. I thought this wasn't acceptable practice, and am trying to find documentation to back this up. Anyone know?


  • I was under the understanding that you had to use the codes that were in effect for the episode SOC date. If I can find documentation to support this, will let you know.

  • Our supervisors had us update the codes too.
