The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has posted a complete list of the 2016 ICD-10-CM valid codes and code titles on the 2016 ICD-10-CM and GEMs web page. The file is named icd10cm_codes_2016.txt. This file will be useful for physician offices and other providers who want to check to make sure that they are reporting all characters in a valid ICD-10-CM code. The codes are listed in tabular order (the order found in the ICD-10-CM code book). This list should assist providers who are unsure if additional characters are needed, such as the addition of a 7th character in order to arrive at a valid code.

A similar list of the 2016 ICD-10-PCS valid codes and code titles is available on the 2016 ICD-10 PCS and GEMs web page. The file is named icd10pcs_codes_2016.txt.
