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 diabetes mellitus E11, Type 2 diabetes mellitus E13, Other specified diabetes mellitus The diabetes mellitus categories E08–E13 are further subdivided into four- or five-character subcategories. When a category has been subdivided into four-, five-, or six-character codes, the diabetes code assigned represents the highest level of specificity within ICD-10-CM. ICD-10-CM Tabular Instructional Notes Diabetes mellitus tabular inclusions notes are introduced by the term "Includes" and appear at the beginning of a category. Categories E10–E13 inclusion notes further define or provide examples of th Continue reading >>

The 2018 edition of ICD-10-CM E08 became effective on October 1, 2017. This is the American ICD-10-CM version of E08 - other international versions of ICD-10 E08 may differ. 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. In most cases the manifestation codes will have in the code title, "in diseases classified elsewhere." Codes with this title are a component of the etiology/manifestation convention. The code title indicates that it is a manifestation code. "In diseases classified elsewhere" codes are never permitted to be used as first listed or principle diagnosis codes. They must be used in conjunction with an underlying condition code and they must be listed following the underlying condition. 2016 2017 2018 Billable/Specific Code POA Exempt Long term (current) use of oral hypoglycemic drugs 2017 - New Code 2018 Billable/Specific Code POA Exempt Long term (current) use of oral antidiabetic drugs Long term (current) use of oral hypoglycemic drugs 2017 - New Code 2018 Billable/Specific Code POA Exempt Long term (current) use of Continue reading >>

Pancreatic Cancer: Practice Essentials, Background, Pathophysiology

Pancreatic Cancer: Practice Essentials, Background, Pathophysiology

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths, being responsible for 7% of all cancer-related deaths in both men and women. Approximately 75% of all pancreatic carcinomas occur within the head or neck of the pancreas, 15-20% occur in the body of the pancreas, and 5-10% occur in the tail. See the image below. Pancreatic cancer. Gross section of an adenocarcinoma of the pancreas measuring 5 X 6 cm resected from the pancreatic body and tail. Although the tumor was considered to have been fully resected and had not spread to any nodes, the patient died of recurrent cancer within 1 year. The initial symptoms of pancreatic cancer are often quite nonspecific and subtle in onset. Patients typically report the gradual onset of nonspecific symptoms such as anorexia, malaise, nausea, fatigue, and midepigastric or back pain. Patients with pancreatic cancer may present with the following signs and symptoms: Significant weight loss: Characteristic feature of pancreatic cancer Midepigastric pain: Common symptom of pancreatic cancer, sometimes with radiation of the pain to the midback or lower-back region Often, unrelenting pain: Nighttime pain often a predominant complaint Onset of diabetes mellitus within the previous year Painless obstructive jaundice: Most characteristic sign of cancer of head of the pancreas Pruritus: Often the patient's most distressing symptom Migratory thrombophlebitis (ie, Trousseau sign) and venous thrombosis: May be the first presentation Palpable gallbladder (ie, Courvoisier sign) Developing, advanced intra-abdominal disease: Presence of ascites, a palpable abdominal mass, hepatomegaly from liver metastases, or splenomegaly from portal vein obstruction Advanced disease: Paraumbilical subcutaneous metastases (or Sister Mary Joseph nodule or Continue reading >>

Icd-10 Diagnosis Code E08

Icd-10 Diagnosis Code E08

Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood 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 enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood. You can also have prediabetes. This means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. Having prediabetes puts you at a higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes. Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb. Pregnant women can also get diabetes, called gestational diabetes. Blood tests can show if you have diabetes. One type of test, the A1C, can also check on how you are managing your diabetes. Exercise, weight control and sticking to your meal plan can help control your diabetes. You should also monitor your blood glucose level and take medicine if prescribed.

Diabetes And Pancreatic Cancer

Diabetes And Pancreatic Cancer

Go to: Prevalence of diabetes in pancreatic cancer Numerous studies have reported the prevalence of diabetes in cancer in general and pancreatic cancer in particular. In studying prevalence, researches have taken a number of different approaches in defining the presence of diabetes in cases of controls. These include physician-recorded diagnosis of diabetes, International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for diabetes, self-reported diabetes by patients answering a questionnaire, patients on anti-diabetes medicationsa and laboratory records showing elevated fasting blood glucose values and elevated glycosylated hemoglobin values. Few studies have prospectively screened patients for diabetes using glucose tolerance tests or measuring fasting glucose values. The prevalence of diabetes in pancreatic cancer has varied considerably (from 4% to 65%) in reported studies, variability that has largely resulted in ascertainment of diabetes noted above. In retrospective studies of medical records and studies relying on self-reported diabetes, the prevalence of diabetes in pancreatic cancer has varied from 4% to 20%.5 A recently published study using medical records to identify diabetes reported the prevalence of diabetes in pancreatic cancer to be 10% which was no different from that seen in the control non-cancer subjects.6 On the other hand, in studies where patients with pancreatic cancer were prospectively screened for diabetes or where fasting blood glucose data on patients was reviewed, the prevalence of diabetes has been shown to be very high (45% and 75%),7–9 a prevalence many times greater than that reported in the general population. A study by Permert et al.7 using glucose tolerance tests in patients with newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer showed that 75% of patie Continue reading >>

Wear Your Detective Hat For Postpancreatectomy Diabetes Mellitus

Wear Your Detective Hat For Postpancreatectomy Diabetes Mellitus

Wear Your Detective Hat for Postpancreatectomy Diabetes Mellitus Following guidelines and asking questions are key to solving the T3cDM coding mystery. One guideline in ICD-10-CM consistently overlooked is I.C.4.a.6.b.i., which is specific to secondary diabetes mellitus due to a pancreatectomy. I.C.4.a.6.b.i. Secondary diabetes mellitus due to a pancreatectomy For postpancreatectomy diabetes mellitus (lack of insulin due to the surgical removal of all or part of the pancreas), assign code E89.1, Postprocedural hypoinsulinemia. Assign a code from category E13 and a code from subcategory Z90.41-, Acquired absence of pancreas, as additional codes. This guideline prompts a number of questions that must be answered before a thorough understanding can be attained. Why is this type of diabetes assigned to category E13 rather than category E08? E08 Diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition You may argue absence of some or the entire pancreas would be an underlying condition and that is correct. But if you look at how the categories of diabetes are divided in ICD-10-CM, you find category E13 pulls several underlying conditions out from category E08. Specifically, if the underlying condition is genetic (affecting beta-cell function or insulin action), surgical, or a condition not included in another category, it is coded to category E13. This understanding prompts two more questions: Why is postpancreatectomy diabetes mellitus included in category E13? What specifically makes this type of diabetes different from the other categories? According to Managing Diabetes and Hyperglycemia in the Hospital Setting, A Clinicians Guide (B. Draznin), postpancreatectomy diabetes mellitus is classified, along with a few other conditions, into its own type of diabetes mellitus, commonly re Continue reading >>

ImportancePatient adherence to antidiabetic medications, especially insulin, remains poor, leading to adverse outcomes and increased costs. Most adherence interventions have only been modestly effective, partly because they are not targeted to patients who could benefit most.ObjectiveTo evaluate whether delivering more intensive insulin-adherence interventions only to individuals with type 2 diabetes predicted to benefit most was more effective than delivering a lower-intensity intervention to a larger group of unselected individuals.Design, Setting, and ParticipantsThis 3-arm pragmatic randomized clinical trial used data from Horizon, the largest health insurer in New Jersey, on 6000 participants 18 years or older with type 2 diabetes who were receiving basal insulin. Patients were excluded if they were insured by Medicaid or Medicare or had fewer than 3 months of continuous enrollment. The study was conducted from July 7, 2016, through October 5, 2017. Analyses were conducted from February 5 to September 24, 2018.InterventionsEligible patients were randomized to 3 arms in a 1:1:1 ratio. Randomization was stratified based on baseline availability of 1 or more glycated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test values. All arms were designed to cost the same, and each cohort received a tailored pharmacist telephone consultation varying based on (1) proportion receiving the intervention and (2) intensity, including follow-up frequency and cointerventions. Arm 1 offered a low-intensity intervention to all patients. Arm 2 offered a moderate-intensity intervention to 60% of patients based on their predicted risk of insulin nonadherence. Arm 3 offered a high-intensity intervention to 40% of patients based on glycemic control and predicted risk of insulin nonadherence.Main Outcomes and Mea Continue reading >>

Coding Guidelines For Diabetes Under Icd-10 | Acdis Blog

Book Excerpt: Coding guidelines for diabetes under ICD-10 The age of a patient is not the sole determining factor for the type of diabetes, although most Type 1 diabetics develop the condition before reaching puberty. For this reason, Type 1 diabetes mellitus is also referred to as juvenile diabetes. If the physician does not document the type of diabetes mellitus in the medical record, the default category of codes is E11 (type 2 diabetes mellitus). If the physician does not document the type of diabetes but does indicate that the patient uses insulin, assign a code from category E11; also report code Z79.4, long term (current use insulin to indicate that the patient uses insulin. Do not report code Z79.4 if a Type 2 patient is given insulin temporarily to bring his or her blood sugar under control during an encounter. In situations where diabetes occurs during pregnancy and for cases of gestational diabetes, refer to the ICD-10 Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting Section I.C.15, Diabetes mellitus in pregnancy and gestational (pregnancy-induced) diabetes. The codes under category E08 (diabetes mellitus due to underlying condition) and E09 (drug or chemical induced diabetes mellitus) identify complications/manifestations associated with secondary diabetes mellitus. Secondary diabetes is always caused by another condition of event (e.g., cystic fibrosis, malignant neoplasm of pancreas, pancreatectomy, adverse effect of drugs, poisoning.) The sequencing of the secondary diabetes codes in relation to codes for the cause of the diabetes is based on the tabular instructions for categories E08 and E09. For category E08, first code the underlying condition. For category E09 first code the drug or chemical (T36-T65). For a patient with diabetes ketoacidosis without co Continue reading >>

Coding Diabetes: Time To Look At The Coding Guidelines Again

Coding Diabetes: Time To Look At The Coding Guidelines Again

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, prompting coders to review the coding guidelines for this disease suffered by more than 10.9 million U.S. residents. During November, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is raising awareness about diabetes, diabetic eye disease, the importance of early disease detection, and related preventive health services covered by Medicare. According to the CMS website, diabetes can lead to severe complications such as heart disease, stroke, vision loss, kidney disease, nerve damage, and amputation, among others, and it’s a significant risk factor for developing glaucoma. People with diabetes are more susceptible to many other illnesses such as pneumonia and influenza and are more likely to die from these than people who do not have diabetes. Among U.S. residents 65 years and older, 10.9 million (26.9 percent) had diabetes in 2010. Currently, 3.6 million Americans 40 and older suffer from diabetic eye disease. Education and early detection are major components to combating this disease. Let’s take a look at the coding guidelines for diabetes to ensure that we accurately select and capture the ICD-10-CM code(s) for this disease. As all health information management (HIM) coding professionals know (or should know), the ICD-10-CM Official Coding and Reporting Guidelines have been approved by the four organizations that make up the Cooperating Parties for ICD-10: the American Hospital Association (AHA), the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). These official coding guidelines are organized into four sections. Section I includes the structure and conventions of the classification and general guidel Continue reading >>

Secondary Diabetes Mellitus Coding

Secondary Diabetes Mellitus Coding

A thorough understanding will be required for ICD-10-CM coding. With the epidemic of diabetes in the U.S. and more Americans being diagnosed with the condition than ever before, the need for more specific diagnosis codes to represent the various forms of the disease has significantly increased. In 2008, 20 new diagnosis codes were released to track secondary diabetes, defined as a diabetic condition whose underlying cause is not genetics or environmental conditions. Coders are required to determine the specific manifestation of the disease (e.g., diabetic nephropathy, retinopathy, ketoacidosis, etc.), whether it is considered to be in a controlled or uncontrolled state, and also the underlying etiology of the disease. This will require medical staff education on the need for specific documentation related to diabetes causes. In addition, coding staff and physicians should prepare for much more specificity in diabetes coding after implementation of ICD-10-CM. The ICD-9-CM secondary diagnosis codes are as follows: Secondary diabetes mellitus w/o mention of complication, [not stated as uncontrolled, or unspecified/uncontrolled] Secondary diabetes mellitus with ketoacidosis, [not stated as uncontrolled, or unspecified/uncontrolled] Secondary diabetes mellitus with hyperosmolarity, [not stated as uncontrolled, or unspecified/uncontrolled] Secondary diabetes mellitus with other coma, [not stated as uncontrolled, or unspecified/uncontrolled] Secondary diabetes mellitus with renal manifestations, [not stated as uncontrolled, or unspecified/uncontrolled] Secondary diabetes mellitus with ophthalmic manifestations, [not stated as uncontrolled, or unspecified/uncontrolled] Secondary diabetes mellitus with neurological manifestations, [not stated as uncontrolled, or unspecified/unc Continue reading >>
