The Health Care Classification System was updated by the Danish Health Authority in June 2018

The Danish Health Authority (Sundhedsstyrelsen) quarterly updates the Health Care Classification System (Sundheds-væsenets Klassifikations System, SKS) and publishes the results on its website two weeks before its implementation, while the files with the changes are sent to the hospital systems.

The adjustments are subdivided into the major and minor changes. Minor changes are mostly the text updates, which do not change the meaning of the term and do not require the code closure. The changes are considered as major if they are associated with the implementation of a new code or the code closure.

In June 2018, The Danish Health Authority published the latest major procedure code changes. Several new codes for invasive medical procedures and imaging diagnostics are provided below:

  • Two new codes for surgical interventions: unilateral and bilateral salpingectomy (KLBE01 and KLBE11)
  • Two new treatment codes for treatment with benralizumab (BOHJ19I3) and collection of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (BUUW3)
  • Three codes MRI diagnostics (UXZ59, UXZ59A, UXMG11)
