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.

Icd-10, Part 4: How To Code For Diabetic Retinopathy

Icd-10, Part 4: How To Code For Diabetic Retinopathy

Written By: Elizabeth Cottle, CPC, OCS, Rajiv R. Rathod, MD, MBA, Sue Vicchrilli, COT, OCS, and E. Joy Woodke, COE, OCS Finding the ICD-10 codes for diabetic retinopathy can be tricky. They are not listed in Chapter 7, Diseases of the Eye and Adnexa (H00-H59), but are in the diabetes section (E08-E13) of Chapter 4, Endocrine, Nutritional and Metabolic Diseases. Retinal complications. To further confuse matters, the most common retinal complications are in Chapter 7, not Chapter 4. Examples include vitreous hemorrhage (H43.1-), traction detachment of retina (H33.4-), and rubeosis iridis (H21.1-). New options. ICD-10 features codes for diagnoses that don’t currently have codes. These include drug- or chemical-induced diabetes mellitus (E09.-); gestational diabetes (Q24.4-); neonatal diabetes mellitus (P70.2); and postpancreatectomy, postprocedural, or secondary diabetes mellitus (E13.-). Changes in Documentation Some terms that you’re using in charts—such as “NIDDM,” “controlled,” and “uncontrolled”—will be obsolete when ICD-10 starts on Oct. 1, 2015. Instead, diabetes documentation should address the following questions: Is it type 1 or type 2? Is there diabetic retinopathy? If so, is it proliferative or nonproliferative? If nonproliferative, is it mild, moderate, or severe? Is there macular edema? Preparedness tips. To help you work through that series of questions, the AAOE has developed a decision tree that you can laminate and keep for reference at the coder’s desk. Download it at www.aao.org/icd10. You also should update your intake form so that staff can capture the type of diabetes. Insulin use? Submit Z79.4 as supporting documentation indicating any insulin use. What’s the Underlying Condition? According to ICD-10 instructions, physicians Continue reading >>

Coding Tip: Cellulitis And Dm Coding

Coding Tip: Cellulitis And Dm Coding

Is Cellulitis always a skin complication of Diabetes Mellitus? In the Alphabetic Index of ICD-10-CM, when indexing diabetes there is an entry under with for skin complications NEC. This has brought up many question over the past year regarding coding of cellulitis in patients that also have a diagnosis of diabetes. Are these two linked by the definition of with in ICD-10-CM? Finally, there is official guidance on this subject. NO, the link is not assumed when patients have cellulitis and diabetes documented. The physician would need to document the cellulitis as a diabetic skin complication or link the two conditions with verbiage such as due to, associated with or similar terms. If the documentation is not clear and the coder is unable to determine whether a condition is a diabetic compilation and/or the ICD-10-CM classification does not provide instruction, it would be appropriate to query the physician for clarification. Even though there is an entry under with for skin complication right after the main term of diabetes, there is not an entry for cellulitis. Per the 4Q2017 AHA Coding Clinic, the with guideline does not apply to NEC (not elsewhere classified) conditions. Only specific conditions would be linked by these terms. If this were the case, then any skin issue would be considered as a diabetic complication when patients have both a skin condition documented and diabetes. An obvious example of this would be a patient with diabetes and also acne. Most likely the acne is not a complication of the diabetes but of puberty or other skin disorder. Heres the definition of with from the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting FY 2018, Pages 12-13: The word with or in should be interpreted to mean associated with or due to when it appears in a code titl Continue reading >>

Icd-10 Diagnosis Code Z83.3

Icd-10 Diagnosis Code Z83.3

Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood. You can also have prediabetes. This means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. Having prediabetes puts you at a higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes. Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb. Pregnant women can also get diabetes, called gestational diabetes. Blood tests can show if you have diabetes. One type of test, the A1C, can also check on how you are managing your diabetes. Exercise, weight control and sticking to your meal plan can help control your diabetes. You should also monitor your blood glucose level and take medicine if prescribed.

Correctly Coding: Diabetes Mellitus

Correctly Coding: Diabetes Mellitus

When selecting International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10), diagnostic codes, accuracy is important when describing the patient’s true health. A joint effort between the healthcare provider and the coder/biller is essential to achieve complete and accurate documentation, code assignment, and reporting of diagnoses and procedures. Diabetes mellitus is one of the most inaccurately coded chronic conditions. Many billers/coders/providers are missing opportunities to show which patients are sicker and are at a higher risk. The prevalence of diabetes mellitus and the complexity of diabetes coding require a solid understanding of the ICD-10 coding guidelines to ensure accurate code assignment. These diagnosis codes are also used in determining the eligible population for the Comprehensive Diabetes Care quality measure and the threshold the member is held to in order to be in control for the Controlling High Blood Pressure quality measure. ICD-10 Category E11* Diabetes Mellitus: Tips on How to Code using ICD-10 Codes Diabetes Mellitus is an HCC (Hierarchical Condition Category) The diabetes mellitus codes are combination codes that include: 1. The type of diabetes mellitus 2. The body system(s) affected 3. The complications affecting the body system(s) When coding diabetes mellitus, you should use as many codes from categories E08-E13* as necessary to describe all of the complications and associated conditions of the disease. These categories are listed below: ICD-10 Code Category ICD-10 Description Note: E08* Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition Code first the underlying condition Use additional code to identify any insulin use E09* Drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus Code first poisoning due to drug or toxin, if applicable Use addi Continue reading >>
