ICD 10

ICD 10 – Introduction

The ICD-9 code sets used to report medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures will be replaced by ICD-10 code sets. This fact sheet provides background on the ICD-10 transition, general guidance on how to prepare for it, and resources for more information.

ICD 10 

ICD-10-CM/PCS (International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition, Clinical Modification/ Procedure Coding System) consists of two parts:

ICD 10 – CM 

ICD-10-CM is for use in all U.S. health care settings. Diagnosis coding under ICD-10-CM uses 3 to 7 digits instead of the 3 to 5 digits used with ICD-9-CM, but the format of the code sets is similar.

ICD 10 – PCS

ICD-10-PCS is for use in U.S. inpatient hospital settings only. ICD-10-PCS uses 7 alphanumeric digits instead of the 3 or 4 numeric digits used under ICD-9- CM procedure coding. Coding under ICD-10-PCS is much more specific and substantially different from ICD-9-CM procedure coding.

ICD-10 will affect diagnosis and inpatient procedure coding for everyone covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA), not just those who submit Medicare or Medicaid claims:

  • Claims for services provided on or after the compliance date should be submitted with ICD-10 diagnosis codes.
  • Claims for services provided prior to the compliance date should be submitted with ICD-9 diagnosis codes.

The change to ICD-10 does not affect CPT coding for outpatient procedures.

ICD-10-CM Indexes

A comprehensive listing of 2015 diagnosis codes can be found in the ICD-10-CM Index to Diseases and Injuries (alphabetical) and ICD-10-CM Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries.
