1 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning Chapter 4 ICD-9-CM Coding Guidelines

2 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning ICD-9-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting Rules developed by the cooperating parties for the ICD-9-CM to accompany and complement the official conventions and instructions provided within ICD-9-CM Companion to ICD-9-CM (continued)

3 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning ICD-9-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting Cooperating parties consist of: –American Hospital Association (AHA) –AHIMA –CMS –NCHS

4 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning HIPAA Alert! HIPAA regulations require providers and third-party payers to adhere to ICD-9-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting. A violation of coding guidelines is a violation of HIPAA.

5 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting Four sections: –Section I –Section II –Section III –Section IV

6 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning Historical Perspective Bertillon International Statistical Classification of Causes of Death International Classification of Diseases (ICD) ICD-9-CM ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS (future)

7 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning General Guidelines Use both the ICD-9-CM Index to Diseases and the Tabular List of Diseases. Locate term in the Index to Diseases first, and verify the code in the Tabular List of Diseases. Assign the highest level of digits available.

8 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning Guidelines Signs and symptoms that are integral to the disease should not be assigned as additional codes. The etiology and manifestation convention requires two codes to be reported to completely describe a single condition. (continued)

9 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning Guidelines Multiple coding –Use additional code –Code first –If applicable, code any causal condition first Acute (or subacute) and chronic conditions Combination code versus multiple code

10 © 2010 Delmar, Cengage Learning Late Effect Residual condition that develops after acute phase of illness or injury has ended –No time limit on reporting Combination code assigned For example, painful cicatrix following severe burn to the elbow or left-sided paralysis due to previous cerebrovascular accident (CVA)
