One of our partners called Feeding Matters has been working for a few years to get pediatric feeding disorders a diagnostic code. Last week they we received word that CDC has officially approved Pediatric Feeding Disorder as a diagnostic code to the next edition of the International Classification of Disease (ICD) on October 1, 2021.

In just 5 short years, Feeding Matters has become the catalyst to the stand-alone definition and diagnosis of PFD.  This is huge news for our organization and a game changer for our work because, once the ICD code becomes active, clinicians will have a pathway for reimbursement from health insurance companies for treating PFD and more families will benefit from that treatment.
