The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) released updates for 2024 related to behavioral health, which went into effect October 1, 2023.

This year’s changes include revisions to coding regulations for certain conditions. These revisions help practitioners communicate more accurately about patient diagnoses.

The following changes will affect mental health coding:

  • hepatolenticular degeneration (formerly E83.0, now E83.01)
  • Parkinson’s disease (formerly G20, now G20.-)
  • Changes to coding for F05, delirium due to known physiological condition
  • Additions to coding regulations for Opioid abuse, dependence, and unspecific use with other opioid-induced disorders
  • Revisions to coding for F50, eating disorders
  • Revisions to coding for F64, gender identity disorders
  • Revisions to coding for F98.2, other feeding disorders of infancy and childhood

See the chart below for more details on how to implement coding changes for each specific area.
