The 2022 ICD-10-CM Expert for Physicians, with early delivery, uses our hallmark features and format, making the challenge of accurate diagnosis coding easier. Developed specifically to meet the needs of physicians, the Optum360 codebook contains the complete ICD-10-CM code set, which is the cornerstone for establishing medical necessity, determining coverage, and ensuring appropriate reimbursement. Symbols in the tabular section identify codes associated with CMS quality payment program (QPP) measures and CMS hierarchical condition categories (HCC) used in risk adjustment (RA) coding.

Guaranteed delivery before October 1, 2021. The timing of the CMS release of the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting might not allow for inclusion. Therefore, this early delivery version might contain the 2021 guidelines.
