13 Chapter 7 Diseases of the eye and adnexa (H00-H59) Overall Notes and Exclusions Note: Use an external cause code following the code for the eye condition, if applicable, to identify the cause of the eye condition Excludes2: Certain conditions originating in the perinatal period (P04-P96) Certain infectious and parasitic diseases (A00-B99) Complications of pregnancy, childbirth and the puerperium (O00-O9A) Congenital malformations, deformations, and chromosomal abnormalities (Q00-Q99) Diabetes mellitus related eye conditions (E09.3-, E10.3-, E11.3-, E13.3-) Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases (E00-E88) Injury (trauma) of eye and orbit (S05.-) Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes (S00-T88) Neoplasms (C00-D49) Symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings, not elsewhere classified (R00-R94) Syphilis related eye disorders (A50.01, A50.3-, A51.43, A52.71)

14 Definition Reminder Excludes1: Excludes 1 note is pure excludes note- meaning NOT CODED HERE! Code excluded should never be used at same time as code above Excludes1 note Excludes1 used when two conditions cannot occur together (Example: congenital versus acquired form of same condition) Excludes2 Excludes2 note means Not included here Excluded condition is not part of condition represented by code BUT patient may have both conditions at the same time Excludes2 used when it is acceptable to use both code and excluded code together, when applicable

18 Disorders of choroid H31

19 Disorders of choroid H31

20 Disorders of choroid and retina H32 Entire Section Code First: You must code the other disease before you code the chorioretinal disorder Excludes1 code means you cannot code these diagnoses together

21 Chorioretinal Scar of Posterior Pole Example Alphabetic Index Scar, scarring (see also Cicatrix) L chorioretinal H posterior pole macula H postsurgical H solar retinopathy H specified type NEC H choroid see Scar, chorioretinal Go to H or H section of tabular listing Depends on the cause of the scar

22 Chorioretinal Scar, Posterior Pole OD Example Tabular Index Appropriate code might be H if macular But could be H if known solar retinopathy scar

23 Toxoplasmosis Scarring of Choroid OS Example Alphabetic Index Chorioretinitis see also Inflammation, chorioretinal - disseminated see also Inflammation, chorioretinal, disseminated - focal see also Inflammation, chorioretinal, focal - histoplasmic B39.9 [H32] - in (due to) - - histoplasmosis B39.9 [H32] - - syphilis (secondary) A late A toxoplasmosis (acquired) B congenital (active) P37.1 [H32] Toxoplasma, toxoplasmosis (acquired) B with - - hepatitis B meningoencephalitis B ocular involvement B other organ involvement B pneumonia, pneumonitis B congenital (acute) (subacute) (chronic) P maternal, manifest toxoplasmosis in infant (acute) (subacute) (chronic) P37.1 This would be the section to review for toxoplasmosis ocular involvement-both reference

24 Toxoplasmosis Scarring of Choroid OS Tabular Lookup The code for toxoplasmosis scar of choroid would be found here and not under the H 30 or H31 sections REMEMBER the Excludes1 note we reviewed Code would be B58.01 NOT PER EYE

25 Choroidal Nevus, Both eyes Example Alphabetical Index Nevus D achromic see Neoplasm, skin, benign - amelanotic see Neoplasm, skin, benign... - choroid D comedonicus Q conjunctiva D31.0- Note: neither choroidal or conjunctival Nevus is under H coding

26 Choroidal Nevus, Both eyes Example Tabular Listing Note that this code is per eye while some in sections other than H Chapter VII are not NEED TO USE BOTH D31.31 AND D31.32

27 Alphabetic Index: Disorders of the Retina H33 Retina, retinal see also condition - dark area D49.81 Detachment - retina (without retinal break) (serous) H with retinal: break H giant H multiple H single H dialysis H pigment epithelium see Degeneration, retina, separation of layers, pigment epithelium detachment - - rhegmatogenous see Detachment, retina, with retinal, break - - specified NEC H total H traction H vitreous (body) H43.81 NOTE: Only one entry under Retina so must look under specific condition

28 Alphabetic Index: Disorders of the Retina H33 Retinochoroiditis see also Inflammation, chorioretinal - disseminated see Inflammation, chorioretinal, disseminated - - syphilitic A focal see Inflammation, chorioretinal - juxtapapillaris see Inflammation, chorioretinal, focal, juxtapapillary Retinopathy (background) H arteriosclerotic I70.8 [H35.0-] - atherosclerotic I70.8 [H35.0-] - central serous see Chorioretinopathy, central serous - Coats H diabetic see Diabetes, retinopathy - exudative H hypertensive H Retinoschisis H congenital Q specified type NEC H Carefully note the sections and the codes in [ ] For Alphabetic Index Both conditions are listed together Etiology code first then manifestation codes [ ] Code in brackets always coded second

29 Alphabetic Index: Disorders of the Retina H33 Retinitis see also Inflammation, chorioretinal - albuminurica N18.9 [H32] - diabetic see Diabetes, retinitis - disciformis see Degeneration, macula - focal see Inflammation, chorioretinal, focal - gravidarum see Pregnancy, complicated by, specified pregnancy-related condition NEC - juxtapapillaris see Inflammation, chorioretinal, focal, juxtapapillary - luetic see Retinitis, syphilitic - pigmentosa H proliferans see Disorder, globe, degenerative, specified type NEC - proliferating see Disorder, globe, degenerative, specified type NEC - renal N18.9 [H32] - syphilitic (early) (secondary) A central, recurrent A congenital (early) A50.01 [H32] - - late A tuberculous A18.53 Only a few of these codes are found under Section H

30 Disorders of the Retina H33 Exclusion Notes

31 Disorders of retina (H34-H35.38) Excludes Notes to Understand for Retina NOTE: Diabetic Retinopathy is NOT coded under retina

32 Disorders of retina (H35.4-H36) Excludes Notes to Understand for Retina

33 Retinal Detachment Giant Tear-Right Eye Example Alphabetical Index Detachment - retina (without retinal break) (serous) H with retinal: break H giant H This would be where to start REMEMBER: few listings under retina must look under conditiondetachment

34 Retinal Detachment Giant Tear-Right Eye Example Tabular Look Up First understand entire section THEN go to the code Final Code would be H33.031

35 Lattice Degeneration of Retina Both Eyes Example Alphabetic Look Up Degeneration, degenerative - retina H hereditary (cerebroretinal) (congenital) (juvenile) (macula) (peripheral) (pigmentary) see Dystrophy, retina - - Kuhnt-Junius (see also Degeneration, macula) H macula (cystic) (exudative) (hole) (nonexudative) (pseudohole) (senile) (toxic) see Degeneration, macula - - peripheral H lattice H microcystoid H paving stone H secondary pigmentary H vitreoretinal H senile reticular H Find the condition not under retina, not under Lattice, but under degeneration

36 Lattice Degeneration of Retina Both Eyes Example Tabular Look Up Find the final after READING all exclusions for section Final code would be H35.413

37 Moderate Dry ARMD Both Eyes Example Alphabetic Index Macula - cornea, corneal see Opacity, cornea - degeneration (atrophic) (exudative) (senile) see also Degeneration, macula - - hereditary see Dystrophy, retina Degeneration, degenerative - macula, macular (acquired) (age-related) (senile) H angioid streaks H atrophic age-related H congenital or hereditary see Dystrophy, retina - - cystoid H drusen H exudative H hole H nonexudative H puckering H toxic H Find description that best fits the clinical picture Again not under Macula Could be H35.30 H35.31 or H35.36-

38 Moderate Dry ARMD Both Eyes Example Tabular Look Up Be careful here since it is NOT eye specific nor degree specific- just when you THOUGHT you had it figured out! If only drusen you would code H35.363

39 Disorders of choroid and retina (H43.0 H44.9) Excludes Notes to Understand for Vitreous/Orbit

40 Disorders of choroid and retina (H43.0 H44.9) Excludes Notes to Understand for Vitreous/Orbit

41 Posterior Vitreal Detachment Left Eye Example Alphabetic Index Vitreal corneal syndrome H Vitreoretinopathy, proliferative see also Retinopathy, proliferative - with retinal detachment see Detachment, retina, traction Vitreous see also condition - touch syndrome see Complication, postprocedural, following cataract surgery Detachment - vitreous (body) H43.81 Vitreous does not list but found under detachment

42 Posterior Vitreal Detachment Left Eye Example Tabular Look Up Note: two different descriptions: degeneration and detachment Code you would use! Final code= H43.812
