New Webinar – Providers: Prepare for the Transition to ICD-10

Friday, January 24, 2014 | 12–1:30 p.m. Eastern Time

The National Council for Behavioral Health will host the upcoming webinar, “Transitioning to ICD-10: Why It’s Important to Behavioral Health Care Providers and How To Prepare.”

The 10th edition of the ICD (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) will modify diagnosis and inpatient procedure coding for everyone covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). All substance use or mental disorder services provided are subject to HIPAA standards. As a result, behavioral health providers must make this transition by October 1, 2014.

Webinar Learning Objectives:

  • Achieve a basic understanding of the ICD-10.
  • Be aware of the significance of making the transition to the ICD-10.
  • Have knowledge of the implementation timeline.
  • Design an implementation strategy specific to the provider’s needs.
