I can't provide a concrete answer, unfortunately. However, a recent tip that we published, which examined a <a href="https://searchhealthit.techtarget.com/tip/SNOMED-CT-will-be-coming-to-EHR-systems-and-patient-records-near-you">SNOMED CT implementation at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center</a>, might offer some insight into what you might want to do if you are still using ICD-9.
I hope this helps.
