General Equivalence Mappings (GEMs)

The 2015 ICD-10-CM codes and mapping files are now posted on the 2015 ICD-10-CM and GEMs web page. The files contain information on the new diagnosis coding system, ICD-10-CM, that is being developed as a replacement for ICD-9-CM, Volumes 1 and 2. This posting includes the following 2015 files:

  • Tabular and index of ICD-10-CM

As a reminder, CMS recently posted the 2013 ICD-10-PCS files to the 2015 ICD-10-PCS and GEMs web page. CMS also posted the ICD-10 Medicare Code Editor v 29 (MCE v29 to be used with v29 Definitions Manual) on the ICD-10 MS-DRG Conversion Project web page, along with additional files for the the ICD-10 MS-DRG conversion project.
