ICD-10 Codes

Diagnosis codes can be sent with procedure codes (e.g. for Medical Insurance). If you need to attach ICD-10 diagnosis codes to procedures, first download the code system, then assign the code.

Diagnosis codes can also used for EHR.

October 1, 2015: ICD-10 codes are required for HIPAA covered transactions. See CMS.gov ICD-10.
