* The White Papers for these elements are for guidance. The NEMSIS TAC will not be creating suggested lists for these elements because of the large quantity of possible codes. The NEMSIS V3 Suggested List Download site does have a file for a few of these based on the pattern and recommended restrictions (e.g. ICD-10-CM: PT, HT, and RxNorm: IN, PIN, BN, etc.).

ICD-10 Website Resources – is a free reference designed for the lookup of all current American ICD-10 (diagnosis) and ICD-10-PCS (procedure) medical billing codes. Reference ICD-10-CM codes for most NEMSIS version 3 elements. ICD-10-PCS codes are used for Medical/Surgical History.

External Standards Maintenance – NEMSIS Roll-up Process for National Code Sets – The NEMSIS TAC leverages existing structures within national code sets to provide code “roll-ups” to facilitate data use and analysis at the State and National levels. A draft technical specification of that process is provided here. (Updated 09/23/2021)
