Disclaimer: This tool is based on the General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) files published by CMS, and is not intended to be used as an ICD10 conversion, ICD-10 mapping, or ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalk tool. Keep in mind that while many codes in ICD-9-CM map directly to codes in ICD-10, in some cases, a clinical analysis may be required to determine which code or codes should be selected for your mapping. Always review mapping results before applying.

Steps to Transition to ICD           

The transition to ICD-10 changes the way healthcare professionals practice medicine, which includes physician, nurses, lab, clinical area, administrative staff, billing, and coding. This does not have to be a daunting task if healthcare professionals take a more systematic approach, in other words, do it in steps (e.g., follow a timeline, and work with their vendors).  The sooner healthcare professionals start the ICD-10 transition process they will less likely be frustrated and within budget, as opposed to waiting until the final countdown.
