ICD-10 Medical Policy Revisions

In preparation for the health care industry's conversion to the 10th version of the International Classification of Diseases code set (ICD-10), Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) is in the process of reviewing our online medical policies to identify those that contain ICD-9 code information, and we're making updates to the policies identified to also include ICD-10 diagnosis codes.

The medical policies listed below were updated to include ICD-10 diagnosis code information. We will continue reviewing our medical policies to make any necessary ICD-10 code updates and will add updated policies to the list below on an ongoing basis.

Providers who use practice management systems that contain ICD-9 code information are encouraged to review the list of medical policies below, and make any applicable ICD-10 code set updates within their management systems, including clinical and financial applications where codes are housed and accessed for reporting.
