Proper reporting of instances of drugs and chemicals involved in adverse effects, toxic effects, and poisonings require assigning the appropriate ICD-9-CM E-code to identify the causative agent. Of the thousands of drugs and chemicals that are encountered by providers every day, only a small number of them are included in the official Table of Drugs & Chemicals in ICD-9-CM code books.
The lack of a comprehensive resource results in additional effort to research the family, or class, of drug or chemical in order to correctly assign an E-code and identify the causative agent.
The Comprehensive ICD-9-CM Table of Drugs and Chemicals expands the official listing of Drugs and Chemicals appearing in the 2011 ICD-9-CM code book to more than 10,000 drugs and chemicals. Organized by brand name and generic name, with therapeutic class and DEA class, users will be able to quickly assign the correct E-code, identify the therapeutic use, and know whether special reporting and regulation of a controlled substance may be involved.
Everything you need to know about each drug, in one place. Includes therapeutic class, DEA class, and generic equivalence along with the appropriate ICD-9-CM diagnosis and E-codes for each drug code.

Please remember: The government no longer allows a grace period for annual code sets. The new HIPAA Transaction and Code Set Rule requires providers to use national medical code sets that are valid at the time that a service is provided. ICD-9-CM code revisions become effective October 1st each year while CPT and HCPCS code revisions become effective January 1st. In order for you to meet this requirement, you must have the revised CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-9-CM codes in your possession before the implementation dates. The best way to do this is to order your code books early. Review current coding resources.
