New Icd-10-cm Codes For Diabetes Self-management Training

ICD (International Classification of Diseases) codes are used by physicians and medical coders to assign medical diagnoses and report inpatient procedures. The ICD-9 code sets will be replaced by ICD-10 code •ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding which is for use in all U.S. health care settings. •ICD-10-PCS inpatient procedure coding which is for use in U.S. hospital settings. ICD-10-CM is for use in all U.S. health care settings. Diagnosis coding under ICD-10-CM uses 3 to 7 digits instead of the 3 to 5 digits used with ICD-9-CM, but the format of the code sets is similar. Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes will continue to be used for physician and outpatient services. It is important to note that the conversion to ICD-10 is not intended to impact payment levels, but claims could be denied if not coded correctly.

    Dx code: Brittle DM (Diabetes Mellitus)

    Would you code brittle DM as (uncontrolled or not stated as uncontrolled) DM?

    Brittle diabetes is exceptionally difficult to control, marked by alternating episodes of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. Frequent adjustments of dietary intake and insulin dosage are required.
    However, even brittle diabetes can be "controlled" with vigilance on the part of the patient and/or caregivers. Therefore, unless the provider specifically stated it was uncontrolled or mentions varying blood sugars, changed the insulin dose, etc., I would not code is as uncontrolled.
    Hope this helps,
