ICD9 Code Book

     An ICD9 Code Book is a book published by the American Medical Association and others which has a complete listing of all current medical diagnosis codes. The diagnoses cover everything from broken bones to rashes to deadly diseases and are used to specify certain diseases or conditions.

      This code book is updated yearly to allow for changes in the diagnosis. New 2008 code books are just being released now in September. Make sure you use current codes as the insurance claims will be denied if you use an outdated code.  You will then have to resubmit the claim with an adjustment form.

      Codes in the book are listed numerically in one section and alphabetically by condition in another. This makes it easier to look up diseases. They are also grouped together numerically by disease and malady. Codes are three, four, or five digits. You must code insurance claims to the highest level of specificity meaning if there is a fourth or fifth digit, you must use them.

      ICD9 stands for The International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification. This is an international classification system which groups related diseases and conditions for uniformity in the medical field for insurance billing.
