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 >>

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 >>

Icd-10 Codes For The Cataract Family

Icd-10 Codes For The Cataract Family

Written By: Sue Vicchrilli, COT, OCS, Academy Director of Coding and Reimbursement, Jenny Edgar, CPC, CPCO, OCS, Academy Coding Specialist, and Rajiv Rathod, MD, MBA How many different types of cataracts are there? According to ICD-10-CM, there are close to 70 ranging from age-related to zonular cataracts. Reporting laterality. For some codes, you include a number to indicate laterality: 1 for the right eye, 2 for the left eye, and 3 for both eyes. For most codes that require laterality, you report this number as the sixth character (e.g., H21.22- Degeneration of ciliary body), but there are some codes where it appears as the fifth character (e.g., H26.3-, Drug-induced cataract). And for other codes, you dont report laterality at all. In ICD-10s Tabular List, check the following chapters for cataract codes. Chapter 7 Eye and ocular adnexa.See the Disorders of lens section (H25H28) for the most-used diagnoses. (For an ICD-9/ICD-10 conversion table of the most common ICD-9 cataract codes, see the Web Extra below.) Chapter 4 Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases. Examples include E10.36 Type 1 diabetes with diabetic cataract, E11.36 Type 2 diabetes with diabetic cataract, E20.9 Hypoparathyroidism, unspecified, E46 Unspecified protein-calorie malnutrition, E34.9 Endocrine disease, unspecified, E74.21Galactosemia, and E88.9 Metabolic disorder, unspecified. Chapter 17 Congenital malformations, deformations, and chromosomal abnormalities. Example: Q12.0- represents anterior and posterior axial embryonal, pyramidal, blue, central, cerulean, congenital, coralliform, coronary, and crystalline cataracts. Chapter 6 Diseases of the nervous system. Example: G71.19 Other specified myotonic disorders. When you submit CPT code 66982, local coverage determinations (LCDs) require 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?

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 >>

Icd-10 Diagnosis Code E10.36

Icd-10 Diagnosis Code E10.36

Diabetic cataract associated with type I 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. Also called: Insulin-dependent diabetes, Juvenile diabetes, Type I diabetes Diabetes means your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. With type 1 diabetes, your pancreas does not make insulin. 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. Type 1 diabetes happens most often in children and young adults but can appear at any age. Symptoms may include Type 1 diabetesType 1 diabetes is a disorder characterized by abnormally high blood sugar levels. In this form of diabetes, specialized cells in the pancreas called beta cells stop producing insulin. Insulin controls how much glucose (a type of sugar) is passed from the blood into cells for conversion to energy. Lack of insulin results in the inability to use glu Continue reading >>

Code List: Res27: Diabetes With Complications

An online clinical codes repository to improve validity and reproducibility of medical database research Adaptation and validation of the Charlson Index for Read/OXMIS coded databases Nada F Khan, Rafael Perera, Stephen Harper, Peter W Rose(2010) Adaptation and validation of the Charlson Index for Read/OXMIS coded databases. BMC Family Practice, doi: 10.1186/1471-2296-11-1 BackgroundThe Charlson comorbidity index is widely used in ICD-9 administrative data, however, there is no translation for Read/OXMIS coded data despite increasing use of the General Practice Research Database (GPRD). Our main objective was to translate the Charlson index for use with Read/OXMIS coded data such as the GPRD and test its association with mortality. We also aimed to provide a version of the comorbidity index for other researchers using similar datasets.MethodsTwo clinicians translated the Charlson index into Read/OXMIS codes. We tested the association between comorbidity score and increased mortality in 146 441 patients from the GPRD using proportional hazards models.ResultsThis Read/OXMIS translation of the Charlson index contains 3156 codes. Our validation showed a strong positive association between Charlson score and age. Cox proportional models show a positive increasing association with mortality and Charlson score. The discrimination of the logistic regression model for mortality was good (AUC = 0.853).ConclusionWe have translated a commonly used comorbidity index into Read/OXMIS for use in UK primary care databases. The translated index showed a good discrimination in our study population. This is the first study to develop a co-morbidity index for use with the Read/OXMIS coding system and the GPRD. A copy of the co-morbidity index is provided for other researchers using similar Continue reading >>

Icd 10 Code For Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus With Diabetic Cataract E10.36

Icd 10 Code For Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus With Diabetic Cataract E10.36

Questions related to E10.36 Type 1 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 >>
