On October 1st, 2015, the entire country, including New Jersey, switched form ICD-9 to ICD-10. This major switch had a huge effect on medical practices all over the state as they had to completely change the medical coding used to make a diagnosis and insurance claim. After a yearlong delay in the implementation of ICD-10, it is finally is in effect. Under ICD-9, about 14,000 medical codes existed. With the implementation of ICD-10 in New Jersey, there are now nearly 68,000 codes! These additional codes require medical professionals to provide more detail in a diagnosis than ever before. This growth was not possible with ICD-9 in NJ.
