2012 ICD-10-CM Code Updates Now Available

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has posted the 2012 ICD-10-CM code updates to the CMS website, including the 2012 ICD-10-CM index and tabular, code titles, addendum, General Equivalence Mappings (GEMs), and reimbursement mappings files.

The 2012 ICD-10-CM files contain information on the new diagnosis coding system, ICD-10-CM, that is being developed as a replacement for ICD-9-CM, Volumes 1 and 2. These files are available on the 2012 ICD-10-CM and GEMs webpage, which can be accessed by clicking here. To access the files, scroll to the bottom of the page to the “Downloads” section.

The 2012 ICD-10-PCS (procedure) files were posted in June on the 2012 ICD-10-PCS and GEMs webpage here.
