The transgender Diagnosis ‚ÄúF64 Gender identity disorders‚ÄĚ, including the underlying codes are per January 1, 2017 discontinued by the Danish Health Data Authority
January 1, 2017 the Danish Health Data Authority discontinues the use of the transgender diagnosis codes ‚ÄúF64 Gender identity disorders‚ÄĚ with the underlying codes. Consequently, these codes will no longer be used in Denmark.
Concurrently The Danish Health Data Authority opens the following new transgender related codes in “Chapter XXI Factors influencing health status and contact with health services” in the Danish version of ICD-10 which is called ‚ÄĚSundhedsv√¶senets Klassifikations System (SKS)‚ÄĚ.
The new codes are not diagnosis codes and therefore has no description.
|SKS Code||Fuldtekst||Full text|
|DZ768E||Kontakt pga. k√łnsidentitetsforhold||Contact related to gender identity issues|
|DZ768E1||Kontakt pga. transk√łnnethed||Contact related to being transgender|
|DZ768E2||Kontakt pga. k√łnsidentitetsforhold i barndommen||Contact related to gender identity issues in childhood|
|DZ768E3||Kontakt pga. andre k√łnsidentitetsforhold||Contact related to gender identity issues|
|DZ768E4||Kontakt pga. k√łnsidentitetsforhold UNS||Contact related to identity issue, unspecified|
Thus, the transgender related codes are no longer placed in the chapter on mental and behavioural disorders. The new transgender related codes only indicate that people have contacted the health service because of gender identity issue.
The changes were the result of a decision by the Danish government and opinion of all parties in the Danish parliament. It was decided that if no solution was found during the fall within WHO on the transgender entries in the transgender classification, then Denmark would change the local version of the classification. Subsequently it was decided to go for a local Danish revision.
The code changes are implemented in Denmark only and is considered a temporary solution while waiting for a clarification by WHO.
From January 1, 2017, the new codes are found in the SKS-browser of the Danish Health Data Authority as follows (in Danish only):
- Go to the SKS-browser: http://medinfo.dk/sks/brows.php
- Write the code ‚ÄúDZ768E‚ÄĚ in the ‚ÄúSKS-kode‚ÄĚ field and press Enter (or press the ‚ÄúS√łg‚ÄĚ button).
Please note: If a search doesn‚Äôt work it may help to reset the search by pressing the ‚ÄúForfra‚ÄĚ button.
