Icd-10 Codes For Diabetes

There's More Than One Type Of Diabetes... I'm pretty sure all of you who made it thus far in this article are familiar with the fact that there are at least two major types of diabetes: type I, or juvenile, and type II, with usual (though not mandatory) adult onset. Just like ICD-9, ICD-10 has different chapters for the different types of diabetes. The table below presents the major types of diabetes, by chapters, in both ICD coding versions. Diabetes Coding Comparison ICD-9-CM ICD-10-CM 249._ - Secondary diabetes mellitus E08._ - Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition E09._ - Drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus E13._ - Other specified diabetes mellitus 250._ - Diabetes mellitus E10._ - Type 1 diabetes mellitus E11._ - Type 2 diabetes mellitus 648._ - Diabetes mellitus of mother, complicating pregnancy, childbirth, or the puerperium O24._ - Gestational diabetes mellitus in pregnancy 775.1 - Neonatal diabetes mellitus P70.2 - Neonatal diabetes mellitus This coding structure for diabetes in ICD-10 is very important to understand and remember, as it is virtually always the starting point in assigning codes for all patient encounters seen and treated for diabetes.

    Has anyone tried to code DKA in a patient with DM 2? The 3M encoder takes you to the code for secondary/other diabetes and then when you try to code other diabetic manifestations you get an excludes 1 notes saying they can't be coded with other diabetes. My code book is a 2014 draft, so I don't know if this has been corrected in the 2015 version, but there is not an entry for DM 2 with DKA. I think the 3M encoder is wrong to code it as secondary/other diabetes, but I can't find another way to code it.

    Laurie,
    There is a Coding Clinic that addresses the type of DM with DKA. I have pasted it below.

    Question:
    What is the correct code assignment for type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic ketoacidosis?
    Answer:
    Assign code E13.10, Other specified diabetes mellitus with ketoacidosis without coma, for a patient with type 2 diabetes with ketoacidosis. Given the less than perfect limited choices, it was felt that it would be clinically important to identify the fact that the patient has ketoacidosis. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), who has oversight for volumes I and II of ICD-10-CM, has agreed to consider a future ICD-10-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting proposal.

    Thanks, Lynn. If a patient also has DM 2 w/nephropathy (E11.21), I guess we will have to ignore the Excludes 1 note that says E13.10 can't be coded with Type 2 DM (E11.-).
