Sample letter to NCHS Dear Sir/Madam: I am an ME patient and have an ME diagnosis or - as a patient/family member/stakeholder in this matter, I strongly object to the combination of ME and CFS under ICD code G93.3. NCHS has coded ME and CFS accurately and separately in the original intent for ICD-10-CM. Please keep the ME and CFS codes/classification/diagnoses separate. ME has been coded at G93.3 and should not be changed or subdivided as in NCHS Option2. The classification for ME should be and remain as G93.3 under Diseases of the Nervous System. Based on science and policy, it is not clinically valid to classify CFS at code G93.3 as the Coalition 4 ME/CFS proposal has recommended. Such changes should not be made to ICD-9 or 10CM or to the future ICD-11. Send to: NCHS <nchsicd9CM@cdc.gov>, Donna Pickett <email@example.com> ASAP! Deadline is Nov 18..
