A simple google search provided this link. Here's the intro from it

Diagnostic Code Descriptions (ICD9)
All claims submitted by physicians to the Medical Services Plan (MSP) must include a diagnostic code. This information allows MSP to verify claims and generate statistics about causes of illness and death. The diagnostic codes used by MSP are based on the ninth revision of the International Classification of Diseases developed by the World Health Organization, commonly referred to as ICD9.

The link is: MSP - Diagnostic Code Descriptions (ICD9) (http://www.health.gov.bc.ca/msp/infoprac/diagcodes/index.html)

Maybe this is a good place to ask.
