ICD-10 Coding of Osteoarthritis | ICD-10 Coding Guidelines http://go.cco.us/icd-10-cm-full-course Chandra: A: For the ICD-10 for osteoarthritis, the guidelines actually state that you should use the multiple osteoarthritis code unless the specific codes are more appropriate for the circumstantial coding, and basically it comes down to the payer rules. If youre seeing a patient simply to manage their osteoarthritis and theyve got osteoarthritis in multiple joints, maybe they got in their left shoulder, their right shoulder, their left elbow and their left hip. Most providers are going to report that with a multiple osteoarthritis code. The times that you would break into the specific joint and laterality would be when youre trying to prove or substantiate medical necessity for certain things, like if you were evaluating a patient or planning to do a hip replacement on that same patient, they may have osteoarthritis and all these different joints but youre focused on the hip joint, specifically the left hip joint. So, your claim should have the specific code to say, Specifically were dealing with osteoarthritis of the left hip, then you could add additional codes, say they also have it here, here, and here, but for our purposes we want that specificity. Thats really the only time that she usually going to come into play, it all comes down to payment, unfortunately. Laureen: Is this the guideline? Alicia: M15 M19 are the codes that were looking at, thats it. Chandra: Yeah. Usually theres a multiple sites option, for categories where theres no multiple site, code should be used to indicate the different sites involved. Alicia: M15.3 secondary multiple arthritis? Chandra: Thats secondary. When youre talking M15, remember secondary is the result of something else. These are more than likely, I think theyre M19s if I remember correctly.

3 Tips For Coding Diabetes With Icd-10

With ICD-10 implementation only a few months away, the American Academy of Ophthalmic Executives has received a number of interesting questions about ICD-10 coding nuances. One of the main concerns is how to code diabetes correctly. Indeed, coding for diabetes has undergone the most significant changes that physicians will see. Here are a few tips to get you on the right track. 1. How you state it in the chart matters. Current documentation of noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus does not translate to ICD-10. Therefore, language such as “controlled” or “uncontrolled” and “juvenile-onset” or “adult-onset” has become obsolete. Type 1 and Type 2 are the preferred, distinguished by the use of insulin. According to Gordon Johns, MD, author of ICD-10-CM for Ophthalmology, “Type 1 is a result from a lack of insulin production, whereas type 2 is a result of insulin resistance.” He adds, “Clarification may be needed from an endocrinologist to determine which type is appropriate.” And while insulin use is more common in type 1, it may also be used in type 2. For ICD-10, record insulin separately using code Z79.4. 2. Choose a diagnosis code carefully. Instead of pote Continue reading >>

    I am looking for any information on coding Diabetes, Type 2, uncontrolled for ICD 10. In a recent educational discussion there was some confusion on which was the appropriate code to use, E11.9 or E11.65. The thought behind E11.65 is that the terms "uncontrolled" and "out of control" have the same meaning. When you look in the alpha index under diabetes, out of control, ( page 95) , it directs you to code "Diabetes, specificed type, with hyperglycemia" which would take you to E11.65.
    During the discussion some argued that the terms "uncontrolled" and "inadequately controlled" or "out of control" did not have the same meaning. Does any one have any documentation supporting or disputing this?
    Also, it was brought up that since our chart just said "uncontrolled" how could we use the code E11.65 since it specifically stated hyperglycemia? Is there any documentation out there stating that "uncontrolled" diabetes refers to hyperglycemia?
    Anything would be appreciated!
    Thanks!!!

    Found this: http://journal.ahima.org/2012/05/16/...n-icd-10-cm-4/ Apparently ICD 10 doesn't use the term UNCRONTROLLED anymore. It's either inadequately controlled, Out of control, or Poorly controlled.

At no time is an official source cited for that statement. I agree that diabetes with hyperglycemia is an out of control disease process, however I do not agree that just because the provider documents "uncontrolled", that this is always what they are referencing. In other words a diabetic patient that does not always adhere to proper diet or does not take the insulin correctly, while they may not yet be hyperglycemic, the provider may document the diabetes is poorly controlled. The coding guidelines do not direct us to code uncontrolled status as diabetes with hyperglycemia. And the classification does not have a listing for diabetes, uncontrolled, or uncontrolled, diabetes. Without an official source, I will default to , if the provider does not state diabetes with hyperglycemia, then it cannot be coded that way.
    Another point to consider on this, an endocrinologist once told me that the reason the ICD-9 classification choices state, uncontrolled, or not stated as uncontrolled instead of uncontrolled vs controlled, is that diabetes is truly never in a "controlled" state and the reason this is not stated this way in ICD-10 CM is because the physician does not need to document this, it is understood that the reason we monitor the diabetic patient as closely as we do is because they are never truly under control. He had a lot more to say on this subject and it does make sense.
    So I would hesitate to put stock in an article that makes a bold statement but does not back it up.

Diabetes Mellitus Icd-10 Case Study | Practice Fusion

A 40-year-old male presents in his physicians office with complaints of new onset of excessive thirst, urinary frequency and fatigue. His physician ran several tests and based on the results he diagnosed his patient with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. The value of describing patient conditions with ICD-10 codes as compared to ICD-9 codes is made evident when comparing codes available for specific conditions. A common disease affecting millions of patients is diabetes mellitus. According to the American Diabetes Association, Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both. The chronic hyperglycemia of diabetes is associated with long-term damage, dysfunction, and failure of various organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, and blood vessels. In spite of the significant prevalence of this disease, ICD-9 codes describing this condition lack specificity, resulting in the lumping of many patients into broad categories that are not as useful for comparisons and quality measures as ICD-10 codes will be once implemented. Patients with diabetes mellitus are most often described with Continue reading >>

Coding Diabetes Mellitus In Icd-10-cm: Improved Coding For Diabetes Mellitus Complements Present Medical Science

Results of a recent coding and clinical documentation pilot study indicate that the ICD-10-CM coding classification changes made for diabetes mellitus have significantly improved coding for this disease. The results of the study noted that although a few ICD-10-CM "unspecified" diabetes codes were assigned, the majority of the diabetes codes sufficiently captured the diagnoses as expressed in the clinical documentation. In addition, the pilot study noted that the ICD-10-CM diabetes codes complement present medical science-separate type 1 and type 2 diabetes category codes and body system combination codes are a major improvement over ICD-9-CM. Instead of classifying as controlled or uncontrolled, ICD-10-CM classifies inadequately controlled, out of control, and poorly controlled diabetes mellitus by type with hyperglycemia. This article highlights key ICD-10-CM features for diabetes mellitus coding. In ICD-10-CM, chapter 4, "Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases (E00-E89)," includes a separate subchapter (block), Diabetes mellitus E08-E13, with the categories: E08, Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition E09, Drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus E10, Type 1 diab Continue reading >>
