Query: Correlation Between Board Certification and ICD-10?
ICD-10 is nearly upon us. Here is a question which may have no value and no correlation to our practices, but I am asking because I fear any adverse answer: Will there be any correlation between the ICD-10 changeover that may affect board certification? I mean affecting those who are diplomates as well as those who aspire to be. If there are correlations, what are they?

Query: Affordable ICD-10 Crosswalks
There are podiatrists independently trying to re-invent the wheel by coming up with their own ICD-10 crosswalks. It would be great if we could have one comprehensive podiatry ICD-10 list which many of us would be willing to pay a reasonable fee to obtain, from someone who has put forth the work to do it all. Is there anyone out there who has put together a comprehensive ICD-10 list that pertains to most all of the podiatry codes that we use, and could they share it for a reasonable fee for their hard work?
