parse RTF description of entire ICD-9-CM for a specific year

Share:

Description

Currently only the most recent update is implemented. Note that CMS have published additional ICD-9-CM billable code lists since the last one from the CDC: I think these have been the same every year since 2011, though. The last CDC release is Dtab12.rtf from 2011.

Usage

1
2
parse_rtf_year(year = "2011", save_data = FALSE, verbose = FALSE,
  offline = TRUE)

Arguments

save_data

single logical value, defaults to FALSE in most functions.
