ICD-10 Codes Effective October 1, 2014
Providers must begin using ICD-10 codes as of October 1, 2014
The IHCP plans to adopt ICD-10 diagnosis codes, as prescribed by HIPAA, subject to any timeline adjustments made by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). ICD-10 is the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, a medical classification list by the World Health Organization (WHO). Diagnosis codes are used to describe codes for diseases, signs and symptoms, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances, and external causes of injury or diseases.
MHS is working diligently to prepare for implementation of ICD-10. Providers are asked to remain abreast of future outreach and communication from Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) and MHS on this important initiative:
