ICD-10 Overview

ICD-10 replaces the current ICD-9 coding for the classification of disease or health condition, symptoms, and causes, used by hospitals, providers, and others, and is required to be implemented for outpatient dates of service or inpatient dates of discharge on and after 10/1/2014. It is AHCCCS intent to implement fully integrated "native" processing of ICD10 code sets and fully review and remediate all impacted policies, rules and processes.
