New Diagnostic Codes Allow Health Care Providers to Better Identify

Human Trafficking and Exploitation

 

Human trafficking and exploitation is known to happen across Minnesota, but current estimates typically rely on the number of victims using prevention and recovery services which can underestimate the number of people impacted. Updates to the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) codes released in October 2018 now better differentiate between human trafficking and other types of abuse. These new codes will help improve the understanding of the depth and breadth of the issue in Minnesota and across the country.

The new codes include two types: T codes are used for cases of suspected and confirmed forced labor and sexual exploitation, while Z codes are used for the examination and observation of human trafficking victims (See Appendix for more detail).
