Here's a quick video tutorial on how to translate ICD-9 codes into ICD-10.

Icd-10 Codes For Diabetes

There's More Than One Type Of Diabetes... I'm pretty sure all of you who made it thus far in this article are familiar with the fact that there are at least two major types of diabetes: type I, or juvenile, and type II, with usual (though not mandatory) adult onset. Just like ICD-9, ICD-10 has different chapters for the different types of diabetes. The table below presents the major types of diabetes, by chapters, in both ICD coding versions. Diabetes Coding Comparison ICD-9-CM ICD-10-CM 249._ - Secondary diabetes mellitus E08._ - Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition E09._ - Drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus E13._ - Other specified diabetes mellitus 250._ - Diabetes mellitus E10._ - Type 1 diabetes mellitus E11._ - Type 2 diabetes mellitus 648._ - Diabetes mellitus of mother, complicating pregnancy, childbirth, or the puerperium O24._ - Gestational diabetes mellitus in pregnancy 775.1 - Neonatal diabetes mellitus P70.2 - Neonatal diabetes mellitus This coding structure for diabetes in ICD-10 is very important to understand and remember, as it is virtually always the starting point in assigning codes for all patient encounters seen and treated for diabetes.

  1. Dm 2 with ketoacidosis

    I had a case to code a couple of days ago; patient had "diabetic ketoacidosis." There was no description as to the type of diabetes, so I went with type 2. At this point, I noticed there are combination codes for DM 1, DM due to drug or chemical, due to underlying condition and specified type NEC, but there is no combination code for DM 2 with ketoacidosis. I coded it as DM 2 with complication NEC E11.69 and Ketoacidosis E87.2. The doctor gave an additional diagnosis of lactic acidosis, which is also coded as E87.2. Does anyone have any insights on a better way to code this, or the rationale of not having a combination code for DM type 2 with ketoacidosis? (Incidentally, the patient also had urogenital warts, severe sepsis present on admission, and there was no mention of any kind kidney malfunction.)

  2. I found an answer on another thread that indicated to go with "DM specified type NEC with ketoacidosis (without coma) E13.10" instead of DM 2 with complication NEC E11.69 and ketoacidosis E87.2 (even though the type of diabetes is not specified); seems strange, but I guess that's what I'll do if it ever comes up again.

    Hello,
    As per coding Clinic Diabetic with ketoacidosis code is E13.10 below is reference from coding Clinic.
    Assign code E13.10, Other specified diabetes mellitus with ketoacidosis without coma, for a patient with type 2 diabetes with ketoacidosis. Given the less than perfect limited choices, it was felt that it would be clinically important to identify the fact that the patient has ketoacidosis. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), who has oversight for volumes I and II of ICD-10-CM, has agreed to consider a future ICD-10-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting proposal

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 >>

    Has anyone tried to code DKA in a patient with DM 2? The 3M encoder takes you to the code for secondary/other diabetes and then when you try to code other diabetic manifestations you get an excludes 1 notes saying they can't be coded with other diabetes. My code book is a 2014 draft, so I don't know if this has been corrected in the 2015 version, but there is not an entry for DM 2 with DKA. I think the 3M encoder is wrong to code it as secondary/other diabetes, but I can't find another way to code it.

    Laurie,
    There is a Coding Clinic that addresses the type of DM with DKA. I have pasted it below.

    Question:
    What is the correct code assignment for type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic ketoacidosis?
    Answer:
    Assign code E13.10, Other specified diabetes mellitus with ketoacidosis without coma, for a patient with type 2 diabetes with ketoacidosis. Given the less than perfect limited choices, it was felt that it would be clinically important to identify the fact that the patient has ketoacidosis.

    Thanks, Lynn. If a patient also has DM 2 w/nephropathy (E11.21), I guess we will have to ignore the Excludes 1 note that says E13.10 can't be coded with Type 2 DM (E11.-).

2018 Icd-10 Update Part 3: New Codes For Diabetes, Myopia Start October 1st

Like most eye care practices, you likely treat patients with co-morbid conditions. The patient population of many practices is often older than average, and many times chronically ill. So, correctly coding for co-morbidity is essential in avoiding costly revenue leaks that could drain cash from your practice. New Options for DKA Coding Recent studies have shown that the number of type 2 patients presenting with diabetic ketoacidosis has been increasing, and that’s one reason for the new DKA codes. Prior to the 2018 revisions, the best coding option to describe a patient with type 2 DKA was E11.69 (Type 2 diabetes mellitus with other specified complication). Beginning October 1, 2017, you’ll see a new subdivision among the E11 (Type 2 diabetes mellitus) codes: E11.1 (Type 2 diabetes mellitus with ketoacidosis). This new subdivision includes two codes: E11.10 (… without coma) E11.11 (… with coma). Other DKA-related additions occur in the following code series: E08 — (Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition) E09 — (Drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus…) E10 — (Type 1 diabetes mellitus …) E13 — (Other specified diabetes mellitus …) All four series cont Continue reading >>
