ICD-10 Program Update
The ICD-10 mandate was implemented on October 1, 2015. The transition to ICD-10 impacted every system, process, and transaction that contains or uses a diagnosis or inpatient procedure code. This includes all lines of business and many supporting technologies across the Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York environment.
The code conversion tables below includes a list of common diagnoses reported by BCBSWNY providers and the most likely corresponding ICD-10 codes.
DISCLAIMER -- The information in our code conversion table is based on the General Equivalency Mapping ("GEM") files published by CMS. While many codes in ICD-9-CM map directly to codes in ICD-10, in some cases, a clinical analysis will be required to determine which code or codes should be selected. In addition, there will be many situations in which you will need to map the ICD-9 code to the most appropriate ICD-10 code. Please be advised that we make no endorsement, representation or warranty as to the accuracy, reliability or usefulness of the code conversion table; use of this table is at your own risk.
