The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released three new resources to help small physician practices prepare for ICD-10. These resources also provide continuing medical education (CME) and continuing education (CE) credits to health care professionals who complete the learning modules, and anyone who takes them will earn a certificate of completion. If you are a first-time visitor to Medscape, you will need to create a free account to access these resources.
