New Codes for UAS-NY 

Situation Report | September 14, 2020

New ICD-10-CM codes will be available for use starting on October 1, 2020. These changes will align with updates published by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for fiscal year 2021 (October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021). The update will apply to both the UAS-NY Online Application and the UAS-NY Offline Application.

The ICD code update will not require a new version of the UAS-NY Offline Application. A one-time download will occur prior to October 1, 2020 when the user syncs the Offline Application to the UAS-NY Online Application.

Be advised, at point of download the sync may take longer than usual. While this process will occur prior to October 1, the updated ICD codes will not be available for assessments with a reference date that is earlier than October 1, 2020.

Questions can be directed to the UAS-NY Project Team at (518) 408-1021 or You should be prepared to provide your Health Commerce System (HCS) User ID when you call or e-mail.
