ICD10 Coding and Diabetes

Welcome to CMS eHealth. By October 1, 2015, the new ICDcoding system will beplace for both diagnosesand inpatient procedures. Using ICD10, s willcapture much more information, meaning they can betterunderstand important details about a patient's healththan with ICD9. The new codes reflecthow health care has changed over the past 30 years with manyadvancesal practice.

You'll notice updates,including definition changes, terminology changes,and a lot more specifics. The most obvious change is thatthe code structure has expanded. While the old codes havethree to five characters, the new codes have up to seven, allowing for more detaileddescriptions. The first three charactersrepresent the egory of disease or health condition,followed by a decimal point.

The fourth, fifth,and sixth characters represent al details,such as the cause of the disease, its severity,and its anatomical loion. Let's look at how this all worksusing the example of diabetes. ICD9 has two major egoriesof diabetes codes, diabetes and secondary diabetes, but ICD10 separates Type 1diabetes from Type 2 diabetes. ICD10 also eliminates the broadegory of secondary diabetes,

instead offeringsecondary options, such as underlyingconditions or causes. To capture more details,subegories can be added to represent both compliionsand affected body systems. For example, the diabetessubegories include ketoacidosis,kidney compliions, ophthalmic compliions,neurological compliions, and circulatory compliions.

Let's say a patient has diabetesdue to an underlying condition. That's code E08,followed by a decimal point. Next come the detailsin the form of subegories, starting with the fourth digit. Ketoacidosis, for example,has a fourth digit of 1. To add even more detail,a fifth digit of zero is ketoacidosis without coma, and a fifth digit of oneis ketoacidosis with coma.

These subegoriesstay the same, no matter what type of diabetesis being described. For example, diagnosis code .621 describes the compliionof foot ulcer. So E10.621 is type 1 diabeteswith foot ulcer, and E11.621 is type 2 diabeteswith foot ulcer. In this example,the provider has documented the egory of diabetesand the compliions.

never complains never not once did she ever complain the words of quit fail and can't are nother vocabulary well she is probably the strongest and one of the biggest fighters that I knowwhen we now when we found out it really um shook us all up because

Di isn't just my sister my best friend she's the family rock story begins with purple eyes my family are hockey players so most people most people just assumed I took a hockey puckthe eye but a biopsy showed i had a very rare noncurable disease hello and welcome to theMassachusetts School of Law eduional forum produced by theMassachusetts School of Law At Andover I'm Diane Sullivan you're host for today's program Being Irish I have the curse of very fair skin so each year I visit my skin

finkel was concerned over my bruised eyelids but I explained to him they had been previously checked and a biopsy showed nothing abnormalthis is just how they are I said no diane said finkel, this is not normalthe biopsy showed nothing I responded again sometimes he said it depends on who reads ita few days later finkel was on the phone it was then I heardabout the disease amyloidosis the first time and I quickly learned

this was not good though the amyloidosis diseases are actually a set of diseasesthat can be blood or bone marrow disordersthemost common form but there are also genetic diseases and diseases that occursecondary to other conditions like chronic infections and chronicinflammatory diseases so they really span a broad spectrum of medical care andfact we've developed a multidisciplinary program to take care ofpatients with amyloidosis but my interest iswhat really is themost common type

amyloidosisthe United States withwhich is AL amyloidosis also known as primary amyloidosis and the same appliesto Sanchorawala so we are hematologists andbecause that particular form is a blood disorderover many decades research here and elsewherewe learn that these diseases can be treated with chemotherapy to affect cellsthe bonemarrow and we consider the disease to be acousin of a more common
