CMS has issued a fact sheet titled General Equivalence Mappings: ICD-9-CM to and from ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS in which it addresses the top 10 questions and answers. Topics include cases in which there is a one-to-one map as well as those in which there is no translation between the two systems, as well as a variety of others.
