Just kidding. After wading through all of the updates and changes, all we could find that seemed to matter to chiropractors is the following:

For ICD-10:

Deleted September 30, 2017:
M48.06 Spinal stenosis, lumbar region

Added October 1, 2017
M48.061 Spinal stenosis, lumbar region without neurogenic claudication
M48.062 Spinal stenosis, lumbar region with neurogenic claudication
Deleted December 31, 2017:
97762 Checkout for orthotic/prosthetic use, established patient, each 15 minutes

For CPT:

New as of January 1, 2018:
97763 Orthotic(s)/prosthetic(s) management and/or training, upper extremity(ies), lower extremity(ies), and/or trunk, subsequent orthotic(s)/prosthetic(s) encounter, each 15 minutes

So, don't fret about code changes this year. Make sure you pick up a copy of the current DeskBook to learn how to get more proficient with the codes that are staying the same.
