NCHS Releases Conversion Table with New I-9 Codes
The National Committee for Health Statistics (NCHS), has updated its ICD-9-CM conversion table for 2010. The 64-page table allows coders to crosswalk old, discontinued codes with current codes, including those effective Oct. 1. The table presents the current code assignments, their effective dates, and previous code assignments back to 1986.
The NCHS develops and maintains the ICD-9-CM codes system for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
