AUSTIN, TX — The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) reminds all Texas workers’ compensation system participants that beginning October 1, 2015, the system will follow federal regulations and transition to the use of the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition, Clinical Modification and Procedure Coding System, (ICD-10). The DWC has created a new training video on the transition from current ICD-9 to ICD-10 code sets available to system participants.
