ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code Correction for Cataract Surgery

October 23, 2015

The incorrect ICD-10-CM diagnosis code H25.001 will be removed from the Surgery: Eye and Ocular Adnexa section of the appropriate Part 2 provider manual for cataract surgery. The correct ICD-10-CM diagnosis code is H25.011 (cortical age-related cataract, right eye).

Updated provider manual pages will be released in a future Medi-Cal Update.
