It is essential to also view the complete ICD 10 code details when locating and assigning a code. The Alphabetic Index does not always provide the full code information. Selection of the full code, including laterality and any applicable 7th character can only be displayed in the code details. A dash (–) at the end of an Alphabetic Index entry indicates that additional characters are required. Even if a dash is not specified at the Alphabetic Index entry, it is important to view the complete ICD 10 code details to verify that no 7th character is required.
Browse the alphabetic list of diseases and injuries to find the correct ICD 10 diagnosis (CM) code reference. Use the Search terms option to help quickly find the correct term you are looking for.
