Regardless of when a claim was submitted for payment, services that occurred prior to October 1, 2015, use ICD-9 codes. Chronic conditions identified in 2015 are based upon ICD-9 codes for the first ¾ of the year (January-September) 2015 and ICD-10 codes for the last quarter of the year (October-December). Starting in 2016, chronic conditions identified are based upon ICD-10 codes for the full year.
