icd10cm2016: ICD-10-CM

Description Details Source


The public domain modified ICD-10 classification as published in the public domain by the US CDC. Currently this has a slightly different structure to icd9cm_hierarchy because the published data helpfully has a leaf flag indicating whether a code is a billable leaf node, or a code higher in the hierarchy which nevertheless will have a description.


There are annual revisions to this data. Currently, the 2016 edition is included.

Format: data frame, with columns for code, leaf status (0 or 1), short and long descriptions.
