According to the instructions for requesters, proposals for a new code should include:
• Description of the code(s)/change(s) being requested
• Rationale for why the new code/change is needed (including clinical relevancy)
• Supporting clinical references and literature should also be submitted.
Proposals should be consistent with the structure and conventions of the classification.
For the proposals to insert Somatic symptom disorder (SSD) and Illness anxiety disorder into ICD-10-CM as inclusion terms under existing F45 Somatoform disorders codes (as listed on Page 45 of the Diagnostic Agenda/Proposals document), no descriptions, no rationales and no supporting clinical references and literature were set out in the Diagnostic Agenda/Proposals document nor presented at the September meeting.
The requesters for each of these additional 17 insertions/changes listed under “Additional Tabular List Inclusion Terms for ICD-10-CM” remain unclear.
If you have comments or objections to the proposed insertion of Somatic symptom disorder (SSD) or in relation to any of the proposals requested via the September ICD-9-CM C & M Committee meeting, please have your submissions in, via email, to Donna Pickett nchsicd9CM@cdc.gov by November 15.
