ICD-9 to ICD-10 Code Conversion

The ICD-9/ICD-10 Code Conversion feature makes it easy to convert claims as you are working in the encounter. 



  1. ICD-9 or ICD-10 marker: Indicates if the payer is accepting ICD-9 or ICD-10 claims. This is determined by the ICD-10 Date set on the insurance company Practice Settings tab. See Practice Specific Settings.
  2. Mode: Switch between ICD-9 or ICD-10 codes. The encounter can be dual-coded. This is useful when the primary and secondary insurances are not yet both accepting ICD-10.
  3. Click Convert to view and select codes either from ICD-9 or ICD-10.
  4. Once you've converted codes, you can click the ICD-9/ICD-10 tab to view the mapping of the codes.\
