STAT ICD-9 2009$29.99 from Austin Physician Productivity, LLC STAT ICD-9 2009

NEW! – Save your favorite diagnosis codes for rapid access. It’s easy.

Why risk having claims denied due to improper diagnosis coding? Hundreds of new ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes went into effect on OCT 1, 2008 including new codes for MRSA, dozens of new headache codes, and a section for secondary diabetes. Additional codes codes have been revised or removed.

Precise medical diagnosis coding is now at your fingertips. Developed by a practicing physician who does all his own ICD-9 coding, this new iPhone tool can be used with just one hand.

How much are you paying someone to do your diagnosis coding? How much do you lose when codes are not specific enough?

There is no need to overuse nonspecific “NOS” codes that often do not meet medical necessity criteria. You’ll never be at a loss to rapidly find the most specific diagnosis code again.

STAT ICD-9 works faster because it gives you only the information that you need – the diagnosis name and the ICD-9 code.

However, don’t buy any coding tool unless you have had a chance to fully test it in your practice. Please try STAT ICD-9 LITE, the free version, which contains the 2008 ICD-9 codes. Then consider purchasing STAT ICD-9 2009 for the current codes, as published by CMS, effective October 1, 2008.
