Dr Linzer has been a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) since 1987 and is active in the AAP sections on Emergency Medicine and Transport Medicine. He is also a member of the AAP Committee on Coding and Nomenclature and serves as the AAP representative to the ICD-9-CM Editorial Advisory Board.

Additionally, Dr Linzer has taken on the role as chair of the first ever pediatric topical advisory group (TAG) as ICD undergoes its 11th revision under the auspice of the World Health Organization. Dr Linzer is an expert in ICD guidelines and implementation and has been actively involved in the ICD-10-CM transition in the United States

The AAP Committee on Coding and Nomenclature (COCN) is responsible for reviewing of all proposed changes to CPT and ICD-10-CM coding structures to determine whether the Academy will endorse the proposal; participates in the American Medical Association/Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee's (RUC) survey process by validating clinical vignettes, evaluating survey data, and deciding on physician work and practice expense relative value units (RVUs) to recommend to the RUC; and serves as a review panel regarding other activities such as identifying Academy positions on the RBRVS. The COCN also monitors the Medicare RBRVS physician fee schedule and its adoption by private and public payers.

To update pediatricians on its activities, including the formal publication of new and revised CPT and ICD-10-CM coding structures and final values for CPT codes used by pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists, and pediatric surgical specialists, the COCN publishes periodic articles in AAP News along with a monthly coding column called Coding ?Corner.

Pediatric Code Crosswalk: ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM was designed as a guide for pediatricians to be used in association with volumes 1 and 2 of the 2015 International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM). Following the implementation of ICD-10-CM, ICD-9-CM codes will be reported only in conjunction with services that were provided prior to the date of transition. In this revision of Pediatric Code Crosswalk: ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM, you will find an appendix of articles from the AAP Pediatric Coding Newsletter Transitioning to 10 series and other articles related to diagnosis coding. Throughout the crosswalk, a Transitioning to 10 is followed by a reference to an article to be found in Appendix B. Also, included for each diagnosis class are key elements of the official guidelines for reporting ICD-10-CM.

The first revision of ICD-10-CM is planned for October 1,2016. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will continue to monitor changes to the ICD-10-CM code sets carefully and distribute the information in a timely manner to the membership through various means, including the publication of the many guides and manuals published by the AAP.

The diagnoses and diseases listed in this coding crosswalk have been identified as some of the most commonly encountered in pediatric patients, and the corresponding codes reflect these diagnoses and diseases. However, the codes in this crosswalk also may be used to report other diagnoses and diseases not listed here.
