Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy has an official ICD-10 diagnosis!: ICP Care and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists – ACOG successfully petitioned the CDC to update the ICD-10 coding system that doctors use in medical charts. Prior to this, Cholestasis of Pregnancy was simply diagnosed as “Liver condition in pregnancy”. We are pleased to announce as of October 1, 2023 patient’s medical charts can now represent an accurate diagnosis of Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy!! We hope this leads to better life-long care for patients as well as the ability to further research into the disorder.
