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 >>
