Icd 10 Code For Background Diabetic Retinopathy With Macular Edema

Coding Q&a

Coding Q&a

CODING Q&A Diabetes Coding for ICD-10-CM SUZANNE L. CORCORAN, COE Coding and documentation for diabetes and especially diabetic eye disease have changed substantially with the implementation of ICD-10. Here are some considerations to keep in mind. Q. What are the major differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 for diabetes? A. In coding diabetic eye disease, there are many changes. Instead of coding diabetes plus any ocular manifestations as separate codes, ICD-10 has introduced “combination codes” that describe the type of diabetes as well as any retinopathy and edema. In ICD-9, we coded diabetes as follows, with a fifth digit to identify the type of diabetes. 250.0_ Diabetes mellitus w/o mention of complication or manifestation 250.5_ Diabetes mellitus with ophthalmic manifestations • 0 – Type II, or unspecified type, not stated as uncontrolled • 1 – Type I [juvenile], not stated as uncontrolled • 2 – Type II, or unspecified type, uncontrolled • 3 – Type I [juvenile], uncontrolled When there was diabetic retinopathy, we coded also: 362.0 – Diabetic retinopathy • 362.01 – Background diabetic retinopathy • 362.02 – Proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) • 362.03 – Nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy, NOS (NPDR) • 362.04 – Mild nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) • 362.05 – Moderate nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) • 362.06 – Severe nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) • 362.07 – Diabetic macular edema (DME) Suzanne L.

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 >>

The transition strategy, tools and resources ICD-10 simplifies coding of diabetic renal, ophthalmic & neurologic manifestations Just one combination code, E11.311 (Type 2 diabetes mellitus with unspecified diabetic retinopathy with macular edema), will sufficiently capture diabetic macular edema in ICD-10, whereas, in ICD-9, the condition requires three separate codes: 250.50 for the diabetes, 362.01 for background diabetic retinopathy and 362.07 for the diabetic macular edema. ICD-10 will simplify the coding of renal, ophthalmic and neurological diabetic manifestations, as most of these conditions, which require a minimum of two codes in ICD-9, are captured with single combination codes in the new code set. In fact, most of the time, the only additional code required when coding diabetic manifestations is that for insulin use (Z79.4, Long term (current) use of insulin) in patients with the type 2 form of the disease [I.C.4.a.3]. The ICD-10 codes that cover diabetes are found in Chapter 4 (Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases) and range from the E08 (Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition) to the E13 (Other specified diabetes mellitus) categories, depending on the type of the condition (1 or 2) and its cause (such as drug of chemical-induced diabetes, or diabetes resulting from another disease). Home health coding will make the most use of codes from the E11.- category (Type 2 diabetes mellitus), says Vonnie Blevins, HCS-D, coding and billing manager for Excellence Healthcare in Houston. Just like in ICD-9, when the type of diabetes is not specified, type 2 should be coded [I.C.4.a.2]. Renal, ophthalmic and neurological manifestations are indicated in ICD-10 with the use of the fourth character 2 for renal, 3 for ophthalmic and 4 for neurological. Continue reading >>

What Retina Practices Need To Know About Icd-10

What Retina Practices Need To Know About Icd-10

After years of delay, ICD-10 (or the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision) is up and running in the United States. The system is used for tracking and monitoring diseases and for health care reimbursement by countries around the world. The new ICD-10 is five times larger than its 14,000-code predecessor ICD-9, demanding greater specificity in diagnoses. How physicians make clinical diagnoses remains the same -- what has changed is the granularity with which the new ICD-10 codes describe those diagnoses. Transitioning to the complex new system is no small task and is likely to present some intermittent challenges for retina practices. With this in mind, ASRS has compiled the following information and resources to assist member practices in their move to ICD-10. Scroll for insights from our interview with coding expert Joy Woodke COE, OCS on: Top 5 concepts for retina ICD-10 Understanding new ICD-10 terminology Tips for transitioning to ICD-10 Top 5 concepts for retina ICD-10 5. Not all ICD-9 codes perfectly crosswalk to a code in ICD-10, but most do Some new codes were not available in ICD-9—for example, the ICD-10 code for cystoid macular edema status post-cataract surgery is H59.03-, “dash” meaning additional digits in the family of codes; there was not a code that specific in ICD-9. There was cystoid macular edema, but not cystoid macular edema status-postcataract surgery. Some codes don't crosswalk 1:1. Example: diabetes. When we code diabetic macular edema in ICD-9, we use 250.51 or 250.50, stating diabetes type 1 or type 2. We use 362.0X (X = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6) for diabetic retinopathy, and then 362.07, diabetic macular edema. Those 3 codes all crosswalk to variations of a single code in ICD-10. A lot of people rely on their practice mana Continue reading >>

E11.319-349 Diabetic Retinopathy

The main goal of the diagnostic evaluation in a patient with diabetic retinopathy is to accomplish the following: Determine the presence or absence of diabetic retinopathy Identify and exclude differential diagnosis Determine if the retinopathy is clinically significant and/or vision threatening The severity of the symptoms or signs isvaried and dependson the level of control the patient has over their diabetes. Patients can present with the following abnormal symptoms: Floaters or dark spots in their field of view The retinal changes associated with diabetic retinopathy include the following: Used to assess visual function and determine the size of any associated visual field defects Visual field may be affected depending on the size and location of retinal hemorrhagingthe extent of the visual field defect depends on size of macular edema A two-dimensional ultrasonic scanning procedure used to produce cross-sectional images of the eye and orbit B-scan ophthalmic ultrasound can be used to assess internal structures of the eye when avitreous hemorrhageprevents proper visualization and examination of the retina The test results are used to determine whether the retina is attached or detached Diabetic retinopathy is classified into two types: 1. Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy Change of diet, weight loss and incorporating exercise Managing any other medical conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol can help reduce the risk Long term control of blood sugar either through oral medication or injection is important for preservation of vision, especially with no signs of diabetic retinopathy or the early stages of it Scatteredlaser treatment, also known as panretinal photocoagulation, can stop the leakage of fluid into the retina Vitrectomy This proced Continue reading >>

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.

Icd-10-cm And Cpt Changes In 2017

November/ December 2016 ICD-10-CM CHANGES The proliferation of International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) codes for 2017 is especially relevant for retina practices, particularly the codes found in Chapter 4.1 New diagnosis codes should be in use now (started October 1), and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has stated that they should be used from October 1 through September 30, 2017. Codes that do not change will continue to be used going forward. CMS was lenient in 2016 in allowing the use of codes with the description unspecified. In ICD-10-CM jargon, unspecified means the laterality or specificity of the diagnosis was not noted in the chart, not that it is unspecified clinically. Practices can expect claim denials if unspecified codes continue to be used. Codes that are more helpful are now in the book, but they are not necessarily where you would expect to find them. For example, codes for combined traction and rhegmatogenous retinal detachments can be found in Chapter 4 (Endocrine, Nutritional and other Metabolic Diseases) under diabetes, not in Chapter 7 (Diseases of the Eye and Adnexa). Chapter 4 also contains codes for use when a disease process has been treated and for disease that is stable. It is important for all physicians in a practice to review these changes because billing, coding, and payment will depend on the necessary information being documented in the chart. GUIDELINES The following is not a comprehensive list of all the changes for this year. Practices are advised to purchase and review the 2017 book.1 Diabetes mellitus has been abbreviated as DM. All descriptors have been abbreviated. Indented codes on this list are read with the beginning descriptor of the prior code. The hyphe Continue reading >>

New Diabetes-related Diagnosis Codes You Need To Know

New Diabetes-related Diagnosis Codes You Need To Know

New diabetes-related diagnosis codes you need to know Ask the Coding Experts, by Doug Morrow, O.D., Harvey Richman, O.D., Rebecca Wartman, O.D. From the November/December 2016 edition of AOA Focus , page 48-49. On Oct. 1, 2016, hundreds of new ICD-10 codes that impact doctors of optometry went into effect. Several additions and revisions have been made in Chapter 4 of the ICD-10 code set (endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases). This chapter includes diabetes-related diagnosis codes. Because doctors of optometry perform the majority of comprehensive, dilated eye examinations for people with diabetes in the United States and are well versed in the treatment and management of diabetic eye disease, it is critical that doctors of optometry are aware of these updated codes. In addition to the diabetes code changes, many other code changes have occurred. Included in this column are just a few of these important changes. New 'code additional' requirements for type II diabetes (E11) The ICD-10 guidelines provide direction on the sequence for reporting certain conditions. The guidelines indicate, "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." For type II diabetes (E11), the "use additional" instructions have changed. Previously physicians were guided to use an additional code to identify any in Continue reading >>

E11.311 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. Short description: Type 2 diabetes w unsp diabetic retinopathy w macular edema This is the American ICD-10-CM version of E11.311 - other international versions of ICD-10 E11.311 may differ. A disease in which the body does not control the amount of glucose (a type of sugar) in the blood and the kidneys make a large amount of urine. This disease occurs when the body does not make enough insulin or does not use it the way it should. A heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by hyperglycemia and glucose intolerance. A metabolic disorder characterized by abnormally high blood sugar levels due to diminished production of insulin or insulin resistance/desensitization. A subclass of diabetes mellitus that is not insulin-responsive or dependent (niddm). It is characterized initially by insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia; and eventually by glucose intolerance; hyperglycemia; and overt diabetes. Type ii diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop ketosis but often exhibit obesity. A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by insulin resistance or desensitization and increased blood glucose levels. This is a chronic disease that can develop gradually over the life of a patient and can be linked to both environmental factors and heredity. Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or 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 Continue reading >>
