ICD-10 Implementation To Cost Physicians and Hospitals Millions

July 31, 2012 1 comment

ICD-10 implementation is expected to happen now (after delays) in October 2014. The American Medical Association and Medical Group Management Associations state that implementation will cost a single  physician $27,000 – $29,000. This amount of money could potentially be detrimental to a physician ‘s (and even a hospitals) bottom line. Below is how much ICD-10 could potentially cost physicians (and hospitals). The calculations you will find below are based upon the number of physicians a facility has. Here is what some of our nation’s top hospitals might pay.
