Icd-10 Diagnosis Code E11.311

Icd-10 Diagnosis Code E11.311

Diabetes means your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. 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. You have a higher risk of type 2 diabetes if you are older, obese, have a family history of diabetes, or do not exercise. Having prediabetes also increases your risk. Prediabetes means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. The symptoms of type 2 diabetes appear slowly. Some people do not notice symptoms at all. The symptoms can include Blood tests can show if you have diabetes. One type of test, the A1C, can also check on how you are managing your diabetes. Many people can manage their diabetes through healthy eating, physical activity, and blood glucose testing. Some people also need to take diabetes medicines.

Icd-10-cm And Cpt Changes In 2017

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 Icd-10-cm Codes For Diabetes Self-management Training

New Icd-10-cm Codes For Diabetes Self-management Training

ICD (International Classification of Diseases) codes are used by physicians and medical coders to assign medical diagnoses and report inpatient procedures. The ICD-9 code sets will be replaced by ICD-10 code •ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding which is for use in all U.S. health care settings. •ICD-10-PCS inpatient procedure coding which is for use in U.S. hospital settings. ICD-10-CM is for use in all U.S. health care settings. Diagnosis coding under ICD-10-CM uses 3 to 7 digits instead of the 3 to 5 digits used with ICD-9-CM, but the format of the code sets is similar. Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes will continue to be used for physician and outpatient services. It is important to note that the conversion to ICD-10 is not intended to impact payment levels, but claims could be denied if not coded correctly. It is not within the scope of practice of a diabetes educator to make a medical diagnosis. Diabetes educators may use this list to customize paper and electronic forms within their DSME programs to facilitate referrals for DSMT or MNT services and the development of super bills. Due to the large increase in the number of diagnosis codes in the ICD-10-CM code set as compared to the ICD-9-CM code set, mapping is not a straightforward correlation between codes of the two classification systems. In certain circumstances, the relationships and linkages between code sets are fairly close – at times a one-to-one correlation. The ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes listed below are a representative list of diagnosis codes for which individuals may be referred to a diabetes educator for self-management education. The list is not meant to be all-inclusive. Additional ICD-10-CM codes can be found at: All of the ICD-10-CM codes listed below have additional digit Continue reading >>

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. Corcoran, COE, is executive vice president and founder of Corcoran Consulting Group, San Bernardino, CA, which specializes in coding and reimbursement issues for ophthalmic practices.

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 >>

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus With Unspecified Diabetic Retinopathy With Macular Edema

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 >>

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 >>

Top Icd-10-cm Changes: Diabetes, Glaucoma And Macular Degeneration

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. As an example, all of Continue reading >>

Get Ready For Icd-10 Changes

The one-year reprieve ends October 1. Heres what you can expect and how to prepare. About one year ago, we were concerned that chaos would occur and the claims processing system we rely on daily might collapse following the implementation of ICD-10. As we know, the system did not collapse and most claims were processed without incident. The most common challenges occurred with coverage for diagnostic tests like optical coherence tomography scans. Some Medicare contractors omitted or overlooked adding some of the new ICD-10 diagnosis codes to Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) that spell out coverage for particular services like surgical or diagnostic procedures. In several areas, new diagnosis codes were not on the October 1, 2015, LCDs, causing erroneous denials. The contractors were responsive to medical societies and individuals and updated the LCDs accordingly. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) also stipulated in its July 2015 publication CMS and AMA Announce Efforts to Help Providers Get Ready for ICD-10 Frequently Asked Questions that, beginning October 1, 2015, they would not deny or audit claims as long as the diagnosis coding remained in the correct family of codes over the next 12 months. CMS stated: While diagnosis coding to the correct level of specificity is the goal for all claims, for 12 months after ICD-10 implementation, Medicare review contractors will not deny physician or other practitioner claims billed under the Part B physician fee schedule through either automated medical review or complex medical record review based solely on the specificity of the ICD-10 diagnosis code as long as the physician/practitioner used a valid code from the right family.1 But the one year of leniency is ending. Combine that with multiple additions a 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, 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 >>
