Diabetes Mellitus: Icd-9-cm Vs. Icd-10-cm

There are significant changes related to diabetes between the two code sets. Let’s discuss some of the differences. Number of categories: ICD-9-CM ICD-10-CM 249 - secondary diabetes mellitus 250 – diabetes mellitus E08 – diabetes mellitus due to underlying conditions E09 – drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus E10 – Type 1 diabetes mellitus E11 – type 2 diabetes mellitus E13 – other specified diabetes mellitus In ICD-9-CM, the codes identify the complication/manifestation associated with diabetes. In ICD-10-CM, there are combination codes that identify the type of diabetes as well as the complication/manifestation. For example, patient with Type II diabetes with diabetic neuropathy: ICD-9-CM ICD-10-CM 250.60 – diabetes with neurological manifestations, Type II, not stated as uncontrolled 357.2 – polyneuropathy in diabetes E11.40 – Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic neuropathy, unspecified Notice that ICD-9-CM uses Roman numerals whereas ICD-10-CM uses Arabic numbers when differentiating between the types of diabetes. As noted above, the type of diabetes is included in category E11 in ICD-10-CM whereas it is captured with fifth digit “0” in ICD-9-CM. Continue reading >>

    I am looking for any information on coding Diabetes, Type 2, uncontrolled for ICD 10. In a recent educational discussion there was some confusion on which was the appropriate code to use, E11.9 or E11.65. The thought behind E11.65 is that the terms "uncontrolled" and "out of control" have the same meaning. When you look in the alpha index under diabetes, out of control, ( page 95) , it directs you to code "Diabetes, specificed type, with hyperglycemia" which would take you to E11.65.
    During the discussion some argued that the terms "uncontrolled" and "inadequately controlled" or "out of control" did not have the same meaning. Does any one have any documentation supporting or disputing this?
    Also, it was brought up that since our chart just said "uncontrolled" how could we use the code E11.65 since it specifically stated hyperglycemia? Is there any documentation out there stating that "uncontrolled" diabetes refers to hyperglycemia?
    Anything would be appreciated!

    Found this: http://journal.ahima.org/2012/05/16/...n-icd-10-cm-4/ Apparently ICD 10 doesn't use the term UNCRONTROLLED anymore. It's either inadequately controlled, Out of control, or Poorly controlled.

It's either inadequately controlled, Out of control, or Poorly controlled. The problem I have with articles like this is that this is someone's version or opinion and they wrote an article. At no time is an official source cited for that statement. I agree that diabetes with hyperglycemia is an out of control disease process, however I do not agree that just because the provider documents "uncontrolled", that this is always what they are referencing. In other words a diabetic patient that does not always adhere to proper diet or does not take the insulin correctly, while they may not yet be hyperglycemic, the provider may document the diabetes is poorly controlled. The coding guidelines do not direct us to code uncontrolled status as diabetes with hyperglycemia. And the classification does not have a listing for diabetes, uncontrolled, or uncontrolled, diabetes. Without an official source, I will default to , if the provider does not state diabetes with hyperglycemia, then it cannot be coded that way.
    Another point to consider on this, an endocrinologist once told me that the reason the ICD-9 classification choices state, uncontrolled, or not stated as uncontrolled instead of uncontrolled vs controlled, is that diabetes is truly never in a "controlled" state and the reason this is not stated this way in ICD-10 CM is because the physician does not need to document this, it is understood that the reason we monitor the diabetic patient as closely as we do is because they are never truly under control. He had a lot more to say on this subject and it does make sense.
    So I would hesitate to put stock in an article that makes a bold statement but does not back it up.
