I have reviewed all of the files provided by CMS for the FY 2023 ICD-CM updates, and remain unclear on ICD code O35.8XX0. The Tabular Index they provided still shows this code listed, but the Tabular Addenda doesn't. The Conversion Table shows this code has been replaced by O35.A-O35.H. Can anyone help clarify this discrepancy?
Thank you! This is a very helpful resource.I found this article which seems to discuss new O35 codes for 2023. Perhaps this will help?
I am still looking for clarification to the changes in the O35 category. EncoderPro has the only comprehensive list I have found showing all deleted codes for the FY 2023 update, and it shows O35.0XX0 and O35.1XX0 will be deleted, but not O35.8XX0? Our Maternal-Fetal practice uses O35.8XX0 (fetal abnormality) on many of our claims so we are trying to prepare for this significant change. Does anyone have further information on whether new codes O35.A-H have been added to the O35.8 category, or whether they are fully replacing O35.8?Thank you! This is a very helpful resource.
