ICD-10 two different types of exclusions. Both indicate that the current category or code excludes some specified condition, which is described elsewhere in the code set. Excludes1 indicates that the code for the excluded condition should not be reported with the current code, while Excludes2 indicates that the code for the excluded condition may be reported with the current code, assuming that both conditions are present. For example, category C43, malignant melanoma of skin, specifies exclusions of both kinds:

* Excludes1: melanoma in situ (D03.-),
* Excludes2: malignant melanoma of skin of genital organs (C51-C52, C60.-, C63.-), Merkel cell carcinoma (C4A.-), and sites other than skin.

** Clinical Documentation Guidance for ICD-10-CM/PCS

Organizations were well on their way to an October 1, 2014 implementation of http://library.ahima.org/xpedio/groups/public/documents/ahima/bok1_050701.hcsp?dDocName=bok1_050701 ICD-10-CM/PCS when Congress passed H.R. 4302, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014. This bill contained a section stating that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) could not adopt the new code set until at least October 1, 2015. Although this one-year delay will impact every organization and provider differently, now is the time to refocus organization efforts on clinical documentation. The delay offers some breathing room to evaluate current programs, implement new programs, or strengthen good processes.

Steps to take for this process include:
1. Identify the top 5-10 surgeries
a. Map to ICD-10-PCS
b. Define the documentation requirements
c. Identify documentation weaknesses
d. Develop documentation improvement
2. Identify the top 5-10 MS-DRGs
a. Map to principal diagnosis and/or procedures to ICD-10-CM/PCS
b. Review MCC/CC list
c. Define documentation requirements
d. Identify documentation weaknesses
e. Develop documentation improvement
