ICD-10 is the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), a medical classification list by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The call line will be specifically helpful when ICD-10 goes live on October 1, 2015. The implementation has been postponed before, but now it is on schedule to go live in two weeks. “Our vision is to provide medical coding with financial peace. With ICD-10 around the corner, there is anything but financial peace in the healthcare industry. This premium resource provided by MedKoder will allow for providers to be able to receive answers to specialty specific questions they may have whether it is related to ICD-10 or any other coding questions,” says Brian Audler, MedKoder President and CEO.
