Clinical Coding Resource Material (CCRM)

The Statistical Services Branch Clinical Coding Resource Material presents information about morbidity related resource materials to support high quality morbidity data, and to assist facilities access to the Clinical Coding Authority of QLD (CCAQ) coding queries and responses.

The coding query response provided by the CCAQ is only applicable to the coding query to which it pertains and should not be applied across similar coding scenarios. If the CCAQ responses are superseded by Coding Rules published by the Independent Health and Aged Care Pricing Authority (IHACPA) then IHACPA Coding Rules take precedence. Coding query responses can be applied to coding practice as soon as they are received unless otherwise directed by the CCAQ.

CCAQ Coding Queries and Responses as at July 2023 (PDF 1962 kB)

CCAQ RETIRED Coding Queries and Responses as at July 2023 (PDF 1032 kB)
