@Dymshyts, @Polina_Talapova, @Eduard_Korchmar?

Hello, we are looking through our sources (UMLS) and those codes are indeed absent. It is possible that those codes where removed from ICD-10-PCS before we have added it as Vocabulary. We can’t find these codes anywhere. We could add them with the next update, if they are available from any source.


(Christian Reich) #3

Google will tell you. E.g. here: https://www.findacode.com/icd-10-pcs/icd-10-pcs-procedure-codes-005-group.html.


(Eduard Korchmar) #4

That site confirms that those codes seem not to exist anymore, for example:

@Eduard_Korchmar:

It doesn’t help us if the site says so. We need to have it in the vocabulary. If codes are no longer used - doesn’t make them deprecated automatically. Only if the source explicitly wants to correct them.

Let’s bring them in and be done with it.

Tracking down changes between 2014 and current versions:

2014: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:nHlzpP36rzoJ:https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD10/Downloads/pcs-whats-new-2014.pdf
2015: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD10/Downloads/2015-pcs-whats-new.pdf
2016: No release
2017-now: https://www.icd10data.com/ICD10PCS/Codes/Changes/Deleted_Codes

These codes are not encountered in any of these lists. That means they were removed from ICD-10-PCS before it was adopted in 2014 in USA, so they are not strictly a part of any ICD-10-PCS release.

We could add these codes and map them manually, but do we have usecase for them, if they could not have appeared in data neither before (because ICD10PCS was still under development) nor after 2014 (because they were deprecated before release)? It would just be a manual bulk of unused codes we carry every release otherwise.

@shinjinaka Do you have a usecase where these codes are needed?


(Shinjinaka) #7

Thanks for checking this issue. These codes were pulled from our look up table for ICD10PCS codes and this was my mistake. I cannot find any used case associated with this code.

Only codes that were not being mapped in our database are date from 2019-09-16 to current below. These not being mapped is make sense since the last update for IDC10PCS is 01-Jan-2018.
