    The only documentation I found is at:
    stating there are no new, revised or deleted ICD-9-CM procedures codes effective 10.1.2012. However, there are changes as that is the same link as AAPC has which we can not find. Code 00.95 injection or infusion of glucarpidase is the only new codes for ICD-9 procedure code
