Upcoming CHDP Provider Manual Section Updates for ICD-10

August 10, 2015

Effective October 1, 2015, Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) program provider manual sections will be updated with the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision (ICD-10) codes and policy. CHDP provider manual sections will be updated to comply with the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act ICD-10 transition.

Updates to the provider manual sections include ICD-10 Clinical Modification (CM) codes replacing ICD-9-CM Volume 1 and 2 codes. Manual pages reflecting this policy will be released in a future Medi-Cal Update.

Providers will no longer be able to use ICD-9-CM diagnosis and procedure codes for health care services provided on or after October 1, 2015. A link to provider manual sections containing ICD-9 billing policy – for reference purposes only – will be included in a future Medi-Cal Update.
