An ICD-10 Code for Sarcopenia: Implications for Diagnosis and Clinical Practice

Published January 26, 2017

The Aging In Motion (AIM) Coalition submitted a proposal to the ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee to establish a code for sarcopenia in July of 2014. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention accepted AIM’s proposal and announced that an ICD-10-CM code would be available for the medical community to use effective on October 1, 2016. This webinar provides expert insights into the process for requesting the code addition, the value of ICD-10 data for research, and the significance of a sarcopenia code in the clinical setting.
