ICD 10 Codes

The ICD-10 Coding Standards document was compiled with the aim of documenting all coding standards agreed on by the National Task Team.

The Council for Medical Schemes and the National Department of Health support the implementation of ICD-10 in the public and private health sector. This is a diagnostic coding standard that was adopted by the National Department of Health in 1996 and is now the responsibility of the National Health Information System of South Africa (NHISSA). It is a diagnostic coding standard that is accepted by all the parties as the coding standard of choice. [Reference – Final Document, ICD-10 implementation, August 2004]
