Upcoming Family PACT Manual Updates for ICD-10

August 6, 2015

Effective October 1, 2015, the Family PACT Policies, Procedures and Billing Instructions manual will be updated with the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM). ICD-10-CM codes replace ICD-9-CM codes to comply with the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Providers will no longer be able to use ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes for health care services provided on or after October 1, 2015.
