Beginning on October 1, 2022, your doctor(s) will be able to place the diagnosis (dx) code G93.32 into your medical record. Thus, after eleven years of advocacy, the United States will add a code for the term ME/CFS and has moved the term CFS to the neurological chapter where the World Health Organization placed it. These changes make things just a bit easier for persons with ME and our physicians.

Notice about names
The Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association would like to clarify the use of the various acronyms for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Chronic Fatigue & Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) on this site. When we generate our own articles on the illness, we will refer to it as ME/CFS, the term now generally used in the United States. When we are reporting on someone else’s report, we will use the term they use. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other federal agencies, including the CDC, are currently using ME/CFS.
Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association changed its name in July, 2018, to reflect this consensus.
