The International Classification Diseases (ICD) is a coding system used to specify diagnosis and related procedures when billing for related medical services. The US Federal government, through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), has mandated the use of ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes and ICD-10-PCS for inpatient procedure coding throughout the healthcare system effective October 2015.

Adult Day Services offer community-based non-residential supports to assist adults with physical and/or cognitive impairments to remain as active in their communities as possible. Adult day centers provide a safe, supportive environment where people can come during the day and receive a range of professional health, social and therapeutic services, as well as a nutritious meal and valuable social interaction. Adult day services also provide respite, support and education to family members and caregivers.
People who are in need of assistance and a place to live, may be eligible for services to help meet that need.
Adult Family Care (AFC) is a 24-hour, home-based, shared living option for eligible Choices for Care (CFC) participants. Authorized Agencies (AA) are paid a daily tiered rate by Medicaid to contract with private, unlicensed family homes that serve one to two people that are not related to the home provider. The home provider receives a tax-free stipend to provide services to the person.
The Adult Services Division, an arm of the Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living, shares in the mission to "Make Vermont the best state in which to grow old or to live with a disability - with dignity, respect and independence." As a part of that mission, ASD is responsible for a full array of long-term services and supports for older Vermonters and adults with physical disabilities.
