The adoption of ICD-10-CM/PCS is effective October 1, 2015 for medical claims. Public health programs that obtain data from multiple data sources may receive data in overlapping time periods without clear indication of which coding scheme (ICD-9 or ICD-10) was used.
Some data reporting entities are not covered by HIPAA and may not switch to ICD-10-CM on 10/1/2015 and some data reporting entities may choose to implement ICD-10-CM before 10/1/2015, given no prohibition against doing so.
To help programs and data users identify which coding scheme is used, the University of California at Davis (UCD) developed a SAS program.
Conversion Tool to the ICD-9 CM to ICD-10 CM Transition is made possible through funding from the Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services (CSELS) within the Office of Public Health Scientific Services (OPHSS) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
