As you are aware (and are preparing for), International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) is scheduled to be implemented on October 1, 2013. The ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee will apply a partial freeze on any updates to ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes prior to that date.

The ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee will continue to meet during the partial freeze and will accept code requests as usual. Therefore, if you have any suggestions for new codes or changes to existing ICD-9-CM codes, please submit your suggestions at www.aap.org/visit/icdform.htm.
