What should I do if the ICD-10 code I use is flagged as 'Removed'?



    ICD-10 codes are routinely updated and sometimes, discontinued.  If one is discontinued, it will be based on date of service.  For example, if you are using ICD-10 N18.3 for a patient and see on the image below that the code has been discontinued as of 10/01/2020.  It will still be a valid code for dates of service 9/30/2020, but beginning on 10/01/2020, you must specify an additional digit. 


Within the DrChrono EHR, the ICD code search will flag discontinued codes with a "Removed since YYYY-MM-DD" message.
