Welcome to ICD-10 search!

This site is a project intended for healthcare providers, medical coders and billing specialists, with a focus on outpatient primary care. It provides tools for searching ICD-10 CM and ICD-10 PCS codes, ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalk / translation tools and tutorials on ICD-10 coding in the outpatient setting. We are also working on finishing an ICD-10 browsing tool as well as a dedicated smartphone app for both Android and iOs (iPhone).

Who is Dr. Gily?

This is the ICD-10-CM and PCS version of his medical diagnosis lookup tool.
