New ICD-10 Codes to Report Human Trafficking

Beginning October 1, 2018, ICD-10 will include new diagnostic codes to report confirmed and suspected cases of human trafficking. Additionally, new codes will be available for patient history of labor or sexual exploitation. For guidance on documenting and coding human trafficking, medical providers and coders are encouraged to go to the Hospitals Against Violence website, or to contact the California Medical Association at (888) 401-5911.
