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 >>

Diabetes mellitus is a complex, multifactorial and heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by endogenous insulin deficiency and/or insulin resistance. The diseasemanifests itself as a state of chronic hyperglycemia with attendant microvascular and macrovascular complications. Macular edema may be present in any stage of diabetic retinopathy and is defined as any one of the following: Retinal thickening within 500 microns of the foveal center Hard exudates within 500 microns of the foveal center, if associated with the thickening of the adjacent retina Retinal thickening greater than one disc area in size, part of which is within one discdiameterof the center of the macul Walls of the blood vessels in the retina become fragile and weakened Weakened blood vessels have an increase in vascular permeability Lipid deposits form in the retinal tissue secondary to chronic edema Report seeing spots or floaters in field of view Report dark or empty spot in the central vision The main goal of the diagnostic evaluation in a patient with diabetic retinopathy is to accomplish the following: Determine the presence or absence of clinically significant macular edema If present, classify the severity of themacular edema Identify and exclude differential diagnosis The severity of the symptoms or signs isvaried and dependson the level of control the patient has over their diabetes.

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.

If needed, use the ICD-10 Spotlight: Know the codes booklet for assistance with these exercises. An answer key is provided below so you can verify if your answers are correct. In addition, a list of code narratives is included on the next page to describe each ICD-10 code. Code the following conditions according to ICD-10 coding conventions and guidelines: Shaken infant syndrome, initial encounter Twin pregnancy, one placenta, two amniotic sacs, third trimester with complication of gestational hypertension Subacute monocytic leukemia, in remission Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of the nasal cavities Benign carcinoid tumor of the small intestine Code the following scenario according to ICD-10 coding conventions and guidelines: Due to ailing health, Janes grandfather will be moving in with her in a few months. To understand what care is needed, Jane escorted her grandfather to his doctor appointment for the first time. The doctor told Jane that her grandfather was being treated for mild nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy with macular edema. He has type 2 diabetes and takes insulin on a daily basis. He has also developed diabetic cataract in his right eye. The following are the corresponding code narratives for each of the ICD-10 codes in the answer key for the coding exercises and coding scenarios: Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic cataract For additional information related to the AmeriHealth transition to ICD-10, please visit the ICD-10 section of our website.
