Insight Into Coding Diabetic Eye Conditions

Insight Into Coding Diabetic Eye Conditions

Insight into Coding Diabetic Eye Conditions CDI , Coding , Leadership , Outsourcing Leave a Comment There are a variety of conditions that can impact individuals with diabetes. People with diabetes are at greater risk for developing eye problems that could lead to blindness or serious deterioration of sight. Age also plays a role in the progression of eye disease in individuals with diabetes. Cataracts, glaucoma and retinopathy are the most common eye diseases that impact people with diabetes. The article below will discuss these conditions and offer tips for proper ICD-10-CM coding. The table below identifies the broad ICD-10-CM Categories for Diabetes. Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition Use additional code to identify any insulin use Drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus Code first poisoning due to drug or toxin, if applicable Use additional code for adverse effect, if applicable, to identify drug Use additional code to identify any insulin use No additional code needed to identify insulin use Use additional code to identify any insulin use *indicates code category in range, look for additional digits Cataracts and Glaucoma both have a high prevalence in people with Diabetes. According to the National Institute on Health, people with diabetes are 2-5 times more likely of developing a cataract. Cataracts are a cloudy appearance over the lens of the eye, preventing clear vision focus. Glaucoma is a condition that occurs when intraocular pressure builds up in the eye and eventually pinches the blood vessels that supply the optic nerve, thus leading to vision loss and nerve damage. When coding for diabetic eye conditions, the most prevalent condition related to ophthalmology that you will see is diabetic retinopathy. Retinopathy is a general term that ref Continue reading >>

There is no evidence within the records whether this is a "diabetic cataract" or not. I'm not sure whether to code this patient as E11.36 (type 2 diabetes with diabetic cataract) or E11.9 (type 2 diabetes, no complications) and H26.9 (unspecified cataract). My gut says that the former is correct, but there is the possibility that the cataracts are due to something other than diabetes. I've reviewed the entire file and have not discovered any other details. The reason I question how to code it is that the doctor's notes state "Patient is unaware of diabetic complications," and then the next line states that the patient has cataracts. My coding handbook warns not to make assumptions about the type of cataract based on the patient's age or other conditions. It further states that cataracts in patients with diabetes are most often senile cataracts, and ..."a true diabetic cataract is rare, and its code should not be assigned unless the physician clearly identifies it as such." It states senile cataracts are more frequently seen in patients with diabetes, but they are not true diabetic cataracts. So, in your scenario you would code the unspecified cataract, or query the physician as to the type of cataract if you still are unclear. According to ICD-10 CM conventi Continue reading >>

Icd-10 Codes For Diabetes

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. How To Code in ICD-10 For Diabetes 1. Determine Diabetes Category Again, "category" here refers to the four major groups above (not just to type 1 or 2 diabetes): E08 - Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition E09 - Drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus E10 - Type 1 diabetes mellitus E11 - Type 2 diabetes mellitus E13 - Other specified diabetes mellitus Note that, for some reason, E12 has been skipped. Instructions on Diabetes Categories Here are some basic instructions on how to code for each of the diabetes categories above: E08 - Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition.

What's Up

What's Up "with" Diabetic Coding?

/ 2 Comments /in Coding , Uncategorized /by Giovanna Govea Responding to coder questions has always been one of my great joys. The challenge of searching for the underlying cause or the analysis of a detailed operative note is second only to a Dr. Seuss favorite with my Grands. Lately, diabetic coding has been a frequent topic for clarification. According to the American Diabetes Association,29.1 million Americans have been diagnosed with diabetes with another 86 million identified with pre-diabetes. The manifestations and associated conditions are staggering, as this disease impacts many body systems. In ICD-9-CM code assignment with the designation of primary or secondary whether type I or II, controlled, uncontrolled and with a documented association of manifestations common to diabetes was the guidance. ICD-10-CM implementation eliminated the controlled and uncontrolled designation, opting for a more robust manifestation instruction. The American Hospital Association (AHA) Coding Clinic publications for first quarter 2016, again second quarter 2016 reiterate the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting FY 2017 I.A.15 which says: With the word with should be interpreted to mean associated with or due to when it appears in the code title, the Alphabetic Index, or an instructional note in the Tabular List. The classification presumes a causal relationship between the two conditions linked by these terms in the Alphabetic Index or Tabular List. These conditions should be coded as related even in the absence of provider documentation explicitly linking them, unless the documentation clearly states the conditions are unrelated. For conditions not specifically linked by these relational terms in the classification, provider documentation must like the condit Continue reading >>

No you do not add a code for the cataract, it is inclusive in the diabetic code. A true diabetic cataract or "snowflake cataract" is rare and occurs in Type I (insulin-dependent juvenile onset) diabetics. Code as 250.51, Diabetes mellitus with ophthalmic manifestations, Type I, and 366.41, Diabetic . Senile cataracts in persons with diabetes mellitus are not classified as ocular manifestations of the diabetes. Typical senile cataracts (366.10) occur earlier and more frequently in diabetics, but are not diabetic cataracts. Code the diabetes and the senile cataract(s) as separate entities (250.OX + 366.10). --- I take this to mean that it is NOT enough when a provider indicates: It sounds like the actual words 'cataract DUE TO diabetes' are needed in order to code correctly, does anyone find this correct? Or I'm I looking for more than what I should?

Icd 10 Code For Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus With Diabetic Cataract E11.36

Icd 10 Code For Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus With Diabetic Cataract E11.36

Questions related to E11.36 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic cataract The word 'Includes' appears immediately under certain categories to further define, or give examples of, the content of thecategory. A type 1 Excludes note is a pure excludes. It means 'NOT CODED HERE!' An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition. A type 2 Excludes note represents 'Not included here'. An Excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition it is excluded from but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together. A code also note instructs that 2 codes may be required to fully describe a condition but the sequencing of the two codes is discretionary, depending on the severity of the conditions and the reason for the encounter. Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology. For such conditions the ICD-10-CM has a coding convention that requires the underlying condition be sequenced first followed by the manifestation. Wherever such a combination exists there is a 'use additional code' note at the etiology code, and a 'code first' note at the manifestation code. These instructional notes indicate the proper sequencing order of the codes, etiology followed by manifestation. In most cases the manifestation codes will have in the code title, 'in diseases classified elsewhere.' Codes with this title area component of the etiology / manifestation conve Continue reading >>

Top Icd-10-cm Changes: Diabetes, Glaucoma And Macular Degeneration

Top Icd-10-cm Changes: Diabetes, Glaucoma And Macular Degeneration

On October 1, 2016, changes to ICD-10-CM coding were implemented. While all of the code changes applicable for optometry are important, a few of the major changes are discussed in this article. Diabetic Ocular Complication Codes The first major change in ICD-10-CM codes for 2017 is for diabetic ocular complication coding. All of the DM retinopathy code choices will now specify which eye is impacted. Several new codes for proliferative diabetic retinopathy were also added. Note that a code for oral diabetic medication use (Z79.84) was added and should be used when applicable. The existing code to designate insulin use (Z79.4) was retained. Keep in mind that not all injectable diabetic medications are considered insulin. If a patient is on both oral medication and insulin, both of these medication codes should be used. The new codes for diabetic retinopathy apply to all the code categories, but only the E11.3 code section is detailed in this article so be sure to review the other categories if you are using them for any particular patient. The other categories include E08.3, E09.3, and E10.3. E11.3 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with ophthalmic complications All of the subcategories under E11.3, with two exceptions, will require a 7th character to indicate which eye had retinopathy. One exception is E11.36 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic cataract. The other exception is E11.39 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with other diabetic ophthalmic complication, but this code does require the use of an additional code to further describe the complication. The ICD-10-CM tabular listing for each of the following subcategories will require the following 7th character to be added as indicated by this statement under each subcategory: E11.32, E11.33, E11.34, and E11.35.

Coding Diabetes: Time To Look At The Coding Guidelines Again

Coding Diabetes: Time To Look At The Coding Guidelines Again

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, prompting coders to review the coding guidelines for this disease suffered by more than 10.9 million U.S. residents. During November, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is raising awareness about diabetes, diabetic eye disease, the importance of early disease detection, and related preventive health services covered by Medicare. According to the CMS website, diabetes can lead to severe complications such as heart disease, stroke, vision loss, kidney disease, nerve damage, and amputation, among others, and it’s a significant risk factor for developing glaucoma. People with diabetes are more susceptible to many other illnesses such as pneumonia and influenza and are more likely to die from these than people who do not have diabetes. Among U.S. residents 65 years and older, 10.9 million (26.9 percent) had diabetes in 2010. Currently, 3.6 million Americans 40 and older suffer from diabetic eye disease. Education and early detection are major components to combating this disease. Let’s take a look at the coding guidelines for diabetes to ensure that we accurately select and capture the ICD-10-CM code(s) for this disease. As all health information management (HIM) coding professionals know (or should know), the ICD-10-CM Official Coding and Reporting Guidelines have been approved by the four organizations that make up the Cooperating Parties for ICD-10: the American Hospital Association (AHA), the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). These official coding guidelines are organized into four sections. Section I includes the structure and conventions of the classification and general guidel Continue reading >>

Diabetic cataract associated with type II diabetes mellitus A cataract is a clouding of the lens in your eye. It affects your vision. Cataracts are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to the other. Common symptoms are Glare - headlights, lamps or sunlight may seem too bright. You may also see a halo around lights. Frequent prescription changes in your eye wear Cataracts usually develop slowly. New glasses, brighter lighting, anti-glare sunglasses or magnifying lenses can help at first. Surgery is also an option. It involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. Wearing sunglasses and a hat with a brim to block ultraviolet sunlight may help to delay cataracts. Diabetes means your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums and teeth. You have a higher risk of type 2 diabetes if you are older, obese, have a family history of diabetes, or do not exercise. Having prediabetes also increases your risk. Prediabetes means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. The symptoms of type 2 diabetes appear slowly. Some people do not notice symptoms at all. The symptoms can include Continue reading >>

Coding, Classification & Reimbursement

Coding, Classification & Reimbursement

In the 4th qtr 2016 a coding clinic was released stating that: ICD-10-CM/PCS Coding Clinic, Fourth Quarter ICD-10 2016 Pages: 142-143 Effective with discharges: October 1, 2016 We have previously been extensively trained that the diabetic cataract is rare, and may occur with rapid onset in Type I diabetics. Coding Clinic for ICD-9- CM previously informed us that the type of cataract more commonly found in adult diabetic patients is the age-related cataract which is not classified as an ocular manifestation of diabetes. The new "With" guidelines instruct us to link any condition indented under the word "with" to diabetes. In this guideline, all cataracts in diabetic patients are diabetic cataracts. Is there a change in understanding of the pathophysiology of the diabetic cataract, and if so, are all cataracts in diabetic patients now considered diabetic cataracts? The advice published in Coding Clinic for ICD- 9-CM for diabetic cataracts dates back to 1985. Based on the revised guideline and changes in the understanding of the relationship between diabetes and cataracts, cataracts in diabetic patients should be coded as linked conditions. Cataracts are considered a major cause of visual impairment in diabetic patients as the incidence and progression of cataract is elevated in patients with diabetes mellitus. Several clinical studies have shown that cataract development occurs more frequently and at an earlier age in diabetic compared to non-diabetic patients. Am I interpreting this correctly that any patient with cataracts and diabetes we should be using the E11.36 Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus with diabetic cataracts even if the physician states it is an age related cataract? Should we also be adding a separate code for the specific type of cataract? What is your interpret Continue reading >>
