In a May 20, 2016 Fierce Health IT post by Dan Bowman:
 
As the end of the first year under ICD-10 fast approaches, physicians who file claims under the Medicare Part B physician fee schedule must be mindful that the end of the one-year grace period for post-payment reviews also looms.

According to Christine Lee, a manager of provider practice audit services at Ciox Health, "Practices submitting unspecified ICD-10 codes after Oct. 1, 2016, may potentially experience an increase in post-payment audits and quality reporting errors."
