At the ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee’s September 14, 2011 meeting, a presentation was made on behalf of the Coalition 4 ME/CFS in relation to the formal submission of a proposal that consideration be given to moving the classification of Chronic fatigue syndrome from its current proposed location within the ICD-10-CM R code chapter (Chapter 18: Symptoms and signs) to the G code chapter (Chapter 6: Diseases of the nervous system).

This would bring chapter location and parent class coding of Chronic fatigue syndrome in line with the international version of ICD-10, published in 1990, the Canadian ICD-10-CA and proposals for the forthcoming ICD-11.

No decision in response to the proposal, meeting discussions and public comment received has been conveyed following closure of the public comment period. Further discussion of Chronic fatigue syndrome has been tabled on the tentative agenda for the September 19, 2012 meeting.

I will post Summary documents and other relevant meeting materials as these become available. There are three posts on Dx Revision Watch that relate to and report on the presentation at the September 14, 2011 meeting:
