From the payers’ perspective, RMs - "Reimbursement Mappings" provide a mechanism for mapping records containing ICD-10-CM codes to “reimbursement equivalent” ICD-9-CM codes.
However, not all payers have used or will be using RMs to make the ICD-10-CM transition. To find out more about how payers determine payment, see your speciality book.
NOTE: This information and much more can be found at InstaCode Institute, with over 20 specialty books to help you transition to ICD-10. These books will be available January 2015. Don’t delay, visit InstaCode in November to pre-order your specialty books.
