The new ICD-10 Codes released by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are now in effect. The codes became effective October 1, 2016. The two new specific codes for FH are:
- E78.01: Familial hypercholesterolemia
- Z83.42: Family history of familial hypercholesterolemia
The National Lipid Association (NLA) in collaboration with the FH Foundation submitted a proposal to the ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee to create new, specific ICD-10 codes for FH in January 2014.
This year, Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) Awareness Day is on September 24, 2016. It was initiated by The FH Foundation as part of their mission to raise awareness of FH in the public.
