1 Chapter 7 ICD-10 Codes

2 ICD-10-CM ICD-10-CM scheduled to replace ICD-9-CM
Target implementation date 2013 Each world government is responsible for adapting the ICD-10 to suit its own country’s needs. In the United States, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is responsible for developing the procedure classification entitled The ICD-10-PCS (which stands for Procedure Coding System). The National Center for Health Statistics is responsible for the disease classification system (Volumes 1 and 2) entitled ICD-10-CM. SXS10ierPPTintC07_P1.ppt

3 Improvements in ICD-10-CM
More relevant ambulatory and managed care encounter codes Expanded injury codes Combination diagnosis/symptom codes Six digits, maximum (Certain categories have 7th character extensions) (Cont’d…) The ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM, Volumes 1 and 2. Extensive expansion of injury codes allows for greater specificity. The creation of combination diagnosis/symptom codes will reduce the number of codes needed to fully describe a condition. New drafts of ICD-10-CM have included up to seven digits. SXS10ierPPTintC07_P1.ppt

6 Crosswalk ICD-9-CM code cross-walked to new ICD-10-CM code Figure: 7.2
As part of the conversion, a crosswalk has been developed. This converts the ICD-9-CM codes to ICD-10-CM codes. Sometimes, more than one ICD-10-CM code crosswalks from the ICD-9-CM code; possible matches are noted in a “best match” column.

7 Index Main terms and subterms Figure: 7.3 The Index is alphabetic.
The Index presents the main terms in bold type with subterms indented under the main term. Sometimes, only four digits of the code are given; coders must refer to the Tabular List.

8 Tabular Figure: 7.4 The 21 chapters of the Tabular are arranged in numeric order after the first letter assigned to the chapter. Modified from Buck CJ: ICD-10-CM, Volumes 1 and 2, Professional Edition, St. Louis, 2010, Saunders. Each section begins with unique letter and codes arranged in numerical order SXS10ierPPTintC07_P1.ppt

9 ICD-10-PCS Will replace Volume 3, Procedures of ICD-9-CM
Currently being piloted Four objectives guide development: Completeness Expandability Multi-axial Standardized terminology Four major objectives guided the development of the ICD-10-PCS: completeness, expandability, multiaxial nature, and standardized terminology. The ICD-10-PCS has a seven-character alphanumeric code structure. Characters 2 through 7 have a standard meaning within each section but may have different meanings across sections. If a character is not applicable to a specific procedure, the letter Z is used. The Tabular List provides the remaining characters needed to complete the code given in the Index.
