Medicare ICD-10 Transition Effective October 1, 2015

ICD-10 is the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), a medical classification list by the World Health Organization (WHO). WellCare utilizes ICD for diagnosis code validation and follows all CMS mandates for any future ICD changes, which includes ICD-10 or its successor. 

All Providers must submit HIPAA compliant ICD-10 diagnoses codes. 

Please refer to the CMS website for more information about ICD-10 codes and the ICD-10 Lookup Tool for specific codes. 

Information on the ICD-10 transition and codes can be found on the ICD-10 page.
