Diagnostic Code Descriptions (ICD9)
All claims submitted by physicians to the Medical Services Plan (MSP) must include a diagnostic code. This information allows MSP to verify claims and generate statistics about causes of illness and death. The diagnostic codes used by MSP are based on the ninth revision of the International Classification of Diseases developed by the World Health Organization, commonly referred to as ICD9.
Note: when entering the diagnostic code into a claim record, be sure to left justify the code without the decimal point, but including leading zeros, and blank fill remaining spaces. Decimal points and other special characters are not recognized by the Teleplan system and will cause claims to be rejected. For more information, see the Teleplan Specifications manual.
MSP's Index and Guide to 3-Digit and 4-Digit Diagnostic Code Descriptions is listed below by section.
