Icd-9-cm Vs. Icd-10-cm: Examine The Differences In Diabetes Coding

Icd-9-cm Vs. Icd-10-cm: Examine The Differences In Diabetes Coding

Most coders can quickly come up with 250.00. And if the physician only documented diabetes mellitus, that’s the correct ICD-9-CM code. If a physician doesn’t document complications or type of diabetes, coders default to code 250.00 (diabetes mellitus without mention of complications), says Jill Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC, president of Young Medical Consulting, LLC, in East Lansing, MI. However, 250.00 is not necessarily the best code to describe the patient’s actual condition. Consider these two patients. Patient A is a type 2 diabetic with well controlled diabetes. Patient B is a type 2 diabetic with uncontrolled diabetes who also suffers from diabetes-related chronic kidney disease. If the physician documents “diabetes mellitus” for both patients, coders would report the same code, even though the patients have very different conditions. The physician loses reimbursement on Patient B, who is sicker and requires more care, Young says. Coding in ICD-9-CM When it comes to the code assignment for diabetes mellitus in ICD-9-CM (250 code series), coders identify whether the diabetes is type 1or 2 using a fifth digit, says Shannon E. McCall, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P, CPC, CPC-I, CEMC, CCDS, director of HIM/coding for HCPro, Inc., in Danvers, Mass, and an AHIMA-approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainer. If the diabetes is secondary, coders choose from codes in the 249 series. Under series 250, coders will find 10 different subcategories that further define and refine the patient’s actual condition. All of those codes require a fifth digit to indicate whether the diabetes is controlled or uncontrolled, type 1or type 2. The fifth digit subclassifications are: Coders also need to note that codes 250.4, 250.5, 250.6, 250.7, and 250.8 all include instructions to use an additional code to ide Continue reading >>

Coding Tip: Uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus In Icd-10

Coding Tip: Uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus In Icd-10

Coding Tip: Uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus in ICD-10 How do coders report uncontrolled DM in ICD-10-CM? First, coders will need to have further documentation of hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia as there is no default code for uncontrolled diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes is classified by type and whether it is hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia. The term uncontrolled is not synonymous with hyperglycemia. The term poorly controlled is synonymous with hyperglycemia when referring to diabetes in ICD-10-CM. In ICD-9-CM, uncontrolled diabetes had a specific 5th digit to show that the diabetes was controlled or uncontrolled. This is no longer the case in ICD-10-CM. If the patient has documented uncontrolled diabetes, without further clarification of hyperglycemia and/or hypoglycemia, a query is necessary to clarify which type the patient has. If the patient does have documented hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia in addition to the diagnosis of uncontrolled diabetes, ICD-10-CM codes would be used to show that the diabetes is with hyperglycemia and/or hypoglycemia. Is uncontrolled and poorly controlled DM the same? No, uncontrolled and poorly controlled are not interchangeable when describing diabetes in ICD-10-CM. Uncontrolled can mean either hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia and is indexed as such in ICD-10-CM. Poorly controlled means hyperglycemia per the ICD-10-CM index.

ICD-9-CM/ICD-10-CM Codes for MNT ICD (International Classification of Diseases) codes are used by physicians and medical coders to assign medical diagnoses to individual patients. It is not within the scope of practice of a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) to make a medical diagnosis. The only exception is in the case of BMI codes which represent a mathematical calculation based on measurements that are within the RDN’s scope of practice to perform. RDNs may use this list to customize paper and electronic forms within their MNT practices to facilitate referrals for 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. However, in many cases, this direct linkage is not possible. 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 registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) for care. Diagnoses were chosen for inclusion based on data collected through the Academy’s 2013 Coding Survey on diagnoses for which RDNs most frequently receive reimbursement. The list is not meant to be all-inclusive. Additional ICD-10- CM codes can be found at GEMs.html. All of the ICD-10-CM codes listed below have additional digits available to provide more specificity to the diagnosis. In designing forms for use in an MNT practice, RDNs should add space for the physician/physician office to include additional digits at the end of the ICD-10-CM codes as they Continue reading >>

Icd-10 Codes For Diabetes

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. How To Code in ICD-10 For Diabetes 1. Determine Diabetes Category Again, "category" here refers to the four major groups above (not just to type 1 or 2 diabetes): 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 Note that, for some reason, E12 has been skipped.

By Karen M. Kostick ICD-10-CM diabetes codes complement present medical science—separate type 1 and type 2 diabetes category codes and body system combination codes represent a major improvement over ICD-9-CM. Diabetes mellitus codes are no longer classified as controlled or uncontrolled. Instead ICD-10-CM classifies inadequately controlled, out of control, and poorly controlled diabetes mellitus by type with hyperglycemia. ICD-10-CM diabetes codes are combination codes that include the type of diabetes mellitus, body system affected, and the complications affecting that body system. The following examples apply ICD-10-CM chapter 4, “Diabetes mellitus E08-E13” tabular list instructions and illustrate diabetes mellitus code combinations and code specificity. ICD-10-CM Diabetes Mellitus Coding Examples ICD-10-CM diabetes codes are combinations codes that include the type of diabetes mellitus, body system affected, and the complications affecting that body system. Diagnosis: A patient is seen for diabetic chronic kidney disease, stage 3. The patient has type 2 diabetes and takes insulin on a daily basis. E11.22 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic chronic kidney disease N18.3 Chronic kidney disease, stage 3 (moderate) Z79.4 Long term (current) use of insulin Rationale: There is a combination code for the type 2 diabetes with chronic kidney disease, and the tabular instructs the coder to use an additional code to identify the stage of the chronic kidney disease. At the E11 category level, the use additional code note instructs the coder to identify insulin use.

E11.65 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus with hyperglycemia. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis. The ICD code E11 is used to code Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS) is a complication of diabetes mellitus (predominantly type 2) in which high blood sugars cause severe dehydration, increases in osmolarity (relative concentration of solute) and a high risk of complications, coma and death. It is diagnosed with blood tests. It is related to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), another complication of diabetes more often (but not exclusively) encountered in people with type 1 diabetes; they are differentiated with measurement of ketone bodies, organic molecules that are the underlying driver for DKA but are usually not detectable in HHS.

Icd 10 Code For Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus With Hyperglycemia E11.65

Questions related to E11.65 Type 2 diabetes mellitus with hyperglycemia The word 'Includes' appears immediately under certain categories to further define, or give examples of, the content of thecategory. A type 1 Excludes note is a pure excludes. It means 'NOT CODED HERE!' An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition. A type 2 Excludes note represents 'Not included here'. An Excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition it is excluded from but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together. A code also note instructs that 2 codes may be required to fully describe a condition but the sequencing of the two codes is discretionary, depending on the severity of the conditions and the reason for the encounter. 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 area component of the etiology / manifestation conventio 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 >>

A Closer Look: Documentation And Coding For Diabetes Diagnoses

A Closer Look: Documentation And Coding For Diabetes Diagnoses

In last month’s Blue Review, we took a closer look at documentation and coding for pulmonary diagnoses as part of our effort to provide more information that may help with the transition to ICD-10, Risk Adjustment and more. This month, we look at diabetes, a group of metabolic diseases that includes chronic and short-term conditions such as diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance. The conditions that fall under this category can sometimes be asystematic and other times can develop complications. It is imperative that documentation is specific and accurate to facilitate accurate, complete and compliant diagnosis code assignment. On October 1, 2014, the health care industry will transition from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM/PCS for diagnoses and inpatient procedure coding. It is essential to take note of the key differences in coding in ICD-9-CM versus the ICD-10-CM/PCS code sets. The goal of this article is to review documentation and diagnosis coding for conditions that fall under the diabetes umbrella to achieve accurate and compliant practices. Diabetes Mellitus Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disease in which the body fails to properly produce or use insulin. Diabetes mellitus is divided into two categories: Type 1, insulin-dependent DM (IDDM), previously referred to as “juvenile diabetes,” and Type 2, non-insulin-dependent DM (NIDDM) previously referred to as “adult-onset diabetes.” ICD-9-CM code structure classifies diabetes into a single code category, 250. Accurate code assignment required determination of specific fourth- and fifth-digit sub-classifications. The fourth digit provides details regarding the presence of manifestations or complications due to diabetes, while the fifth digit indicates whether the diabetes is controlled or Continue reading >>

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 Being very thirsty Urinating often Feeling very hungry or tired Losing weight without trying Having sores that heal slowly Having blurry eyesight 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.
