Formatting of ICD Items
If the ICD-9 item is active, it must be submitted as an 8 character, fixed-format string with all blanks replaced with ^, and with a decimal point as the 6th character. The only exception to this rule is that an entirely blank ICD-9 item must be submitted as a single ^.
-The ICD-9 code "123.4" would be submitted as [^^123.4^].
-The ICD-9 code "123." would be submitted as [^^123.^^].
-The ICD-9 code "E123.4" would be submitted as [^E123.4^].
-The ICD-9 code "V12.3" would be submitted as [^^V12.3^]
-An entirely blank ICD-9 code would be submitted as [^].
Other formatting rules are as follows:
a) Character 1 must be [^].
b) Character 2 must be [E,^].
c) If character 2 is [^], then character 3 can be [V,0-9]. If character 2 is [E], then character 3 must be [0-9].
d) Characters 4 through 5 must be [0-9].
e) Character 6 must be a decimal point.
f) Characters 7 and 8 must be [0-9,^].
g) If character 7 is a [^], then character 8 must be a [^].
Note that ICD-10 codes are formatted differently from ICD-9 codes and are not accepted at this time.
