In ICD-10-CM, these codes are located in Chapter 21 and have the initial alpha character of “Z,” so codes in this chapter eventually may be referred to as “Z-codes” (just as the same supplementary codes in ICD-9-CM were referred to as “V-codes”). While code descriptions in Chapter 21, such as aftercare, may appear to denote descriptions of services or procedures, they are not procedure codes.
