Maryland Medicaid will accept ICD-10 codes on October 1, 2015.
ICD is the International Classification of Disease, providing code description for every possible diagnosis, symptom, or cause of death.
Developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), ICD codes are monitored in the United States by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
ICD codes encompass both diagnostic and procedural codes. Changes to both the alpha-numeric composition of codes and procedural terminology associated with codes will occur wth ICD-10 conversion.
Adopting ICD-10 will allow for better support for analysis, reporting, risk, and severity assessment.
DHMH developed an ICD-10 FAQ to address provider questions about Maryland Medicaid's ICD-10 implementation strategy and policies. View the
