Guidelines for Determining the Probability of Causation under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000; Technical Amendments

August 2019
NIOSH Docket Number 329, CDC-2019-0050

HHS is revising 42 CFR part 81 to update references to the International Classification of Disease (ICD) codes from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM, and remove outdated references to chronic lymphocytic leukemia from Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program regulations. These technical amendments have no effect on the cancer eligibility requirement under the Program because all cancer types are eligible to receive a dose reconstruction from NIOSH. Thus, no eligible claimant will be adversely impacted by this rulemaking.
