ICD 10 CODE – Stands for International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (10th revision). It is a coding system developed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) that translates the written description of medical and health information into standard codes, e.g. J03.9 is an ICD-10 code for acute tonsillitis (unspecified) and G40.9 denotes epilepsy (unspecified). These codes are used to inform medical schemes about what conditions their members were treated for so that claims can be paid from the correct benefit.
