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

    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.
    Diabetes mellitus with diabetic ketoacidosis
    Coding Clinic, First Quarter 2013 Page: 26-27 Effective with discharges: March 27, 2013

    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. 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.

    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.-).

Icd-10 Version:2014

Quick search helps you quickly navigate to a particular category. It searches only titles, inclusions and the index and it works by starting to search as you type and provide you options in a dynamic dropdown list. You may use this feature by simply typing the keywords that you're looking for and clicking on one of the items that appear in the dropdown list. The system will automatically load the item that you've picked. You may use wildcards '*' as well to find similar words or to simply save some typing. For example, tuber* confirmed will hit both tuberculosis and tuberculous together with the word 'confirmed' If you need to search other fields than the title, inclusion and the index then you may use the advanced search feature You may also use ICD codes here in order to navigate to a known ICD category. The colored squares show from where the results are found. (green:Title, blue:inclusions, orange:index, red:ICD code) You don't need to remeber the colors as you may hover your mouse on these squares to read the source. Continue reading >>

    I understand that the guidelines state "uncontrolled" should be coded as hyperglycemia. What about the DKA type 2 portion? We have 2 opinions in our office and I am just looking for the correct way to code it.
    I suspect for my scenario E11.65, E11.69 and E87.2. Please help.
    There really should be an E11.1X...LOL!!
    Thank you,
    Anna

  2. mitchellde

    Ketoacidosis is actually rare in a type 2 diabetic so that may be the reason for no specific code for it. So use the E11.69 with the E87.2

  3. amsmith

    Oddly, our physician's document it frequently. I will check with one of them to find out why we tend to have a higher volume.
