Draft ICD-10 Code Release Manual Sections
In preparation for the implementation of ICD-10, all current provider manual sections on the Medi-Cal website referencing ICD-9 policy must be updated to reflect ICD-10 policy by the October 1, 2015 transition.
The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) recognizes the transition will significantly impact the Medi-Cal program and providers. To prepare providers for the transition, DHCS has prepared Draft ICD-10 Code Release manual sections as a preview of the ICD-10 implementation impact to policy. These draft manual sections can be downloaded from the ICD-10 page of the Medi-Cal website. The Draft ICD-10 Code Release manual sections are not the final policy and may be subject to change.
The final policy changes from the implementation to ICD-10 will be published in future Medi-Cal and Family PACT Updates.
