ICD9 Consult puts the complete, latest ICD9-CM on your iPhone or iPod Touch for about 1/3 the price of most printed ICD9-CM manuals which are far less convenient. With ICD9 Consult, you’ll never have to flip through a 30 pound book or go hunting for a coding reference page again.
The 2009 ICD9-CM diagnosis codes are both searchable and browsable by their traditional categories. Search simultaneously by code, diagnosis, included diagnoses, and description, through the whole ICD9-CM or through just a category or selected nonspecific code. Images within the list indicate whether a code is specific or nonspecific. Tap to view the diagnosis and the full text of its standard ICD-9 long description and to add it to your Favorites list for immediate access later.
The same features are available for the ICD9-CM procedure codes, too. ICD9 Consult 1.0 includes the 2008 procedure codes, as the 2009 codes are not yet available; a free update will be released with the 2009 procedure codes in the next month.
Features at a glance:
• Complete 2009 ICD9-CM diagnosis codes and 2008 ICD9-CM procedure codes, with all subcodes and all long descriptions: over 21,000 individual codes, instantly accessible
• Search within any list of codes, by code number, by diagnosis, and by full text of long descriptions
•Diagnoses’ descriptions have an “includes” section, which is also indexed and searched, which links alternate names and diagnoses to ICD-9 codes. A search for “B2 deficiency” will find 266.0 Ariboflavinosis!
• Search automatically expands abbreviations and terms for the best results; e.g. “MI” → “Myocardial Infarction.”
• Browse diagnoses and ICD9-CM procedures by category and subcategory; easily limit searches to particular categories
• Distinguish specific from non-specific codes at a glance; tap a non-specific code to view its specific children. Navigate to its parent to quickly compare one specific diagnosis to another, ensuring you code for maximum reimbursement every time.
• Keep a Favorites list of diagnoses and procedures, which may include specific and nonspecific codes.
Don’t be fooled by imitations! ICD9 Consult is the *only* ICD9 reference which provides:
• True search capabilities
• 100% of the ICD9-CM
• Real names for diagnoses and procedures rather than abbreviated, hard to guess names
• The complete text of the ICD9-CM descriptions.
• Extensive ‘includes’ diagnoses
Note regarding procedure codes: ICD9 Consult provides the ICD9-CM Procedure Codes. These are not the same as the CPT Procedure Codes (which are © the AMA). Please be sure to use the codes required by your practice and billing policies. There is an inaccurate 1-star review in the comments due to this misunderstanding.

A misleading review has been posted; I will respond to it here:
• Dr. Hegler claims the “procedure codes are wrong.” This is inaccurate. The procedure codes in ICD9 Consult are the ICD9-CM procedure codes, as described above, not the CPT procedure codes he was seeking. I found Dr. Hegler’s office via Google and left him a message offering a full refund, but he has declined to return my call. I also filled his request to provide searching by system in the Browser, in ICD9 Consult 1.1.
Please leave reviews if you like what you see… but please email me if you have questions or concerns, as it is impossible to respond to customer reviews! I promise 100% satisfaction and provide a 100% refund if ICD9 Consult is not exactly what you wanted it to be. firstname.lastname@example.org
