ICD-10-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee Meeting

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention & National Center for Health Statistics
The ICD-10-CM coordination maintenance committee is a public forum to discuss ICD-10-CM diagnosis updates. The committee is co-chaired by CMS who has lead responsibility for procedure code issued and by CDC which has lead responsibility for the diagnosis code issued. Each agency presents coding proposals that have been requested by the public and interested parties are given the opportunity to make comments. Submit diagnosis comments to NCHS at the following website: nchsicd10cm@cdc.gov

The new ICD-10-CM/PCS codes for April 1, 2022, implementation were released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on November 16, 2021.

                  There are three new diagnosis codes for April 1:
                          Z28.310 – Unvaccinated for COVID-19
                          Z28.311 – Partially vaccinated for COVID-19
                          Z28.39 – Other underimmunization status

These codes include coding instructions in the Tabular List. There is a note for the codes in subcategory Z28.31 that says, “These codes should not be used for individuals who are not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccines, as determined by the healthcare provider.”  The inclusion terms for Z28.39 include delinquent immunization status and lapsed immunization schedule status. None of the new diagnosis codes are designated as a major comorbid condition (MCC) or comorbid condition (CC). A new guideline, I.C.1.g.10 (n) Underimmunization for COVID-19 Status, related to the new codes is included in the updated Official ICD-10-CM Guidelines.

June 10, 2022, is the deadline for new proposals received to be discussed at the September 13-14, 2022, ICD-10 -CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee Meeting to be considered for implementation on October 1, 2023. Diagnosis requests can be submitted to NCHS nchsicd10@cdc.gov
