ICD-101: The ICD-10 codes needed for monsters and monster storms
Last week gave most of the East Coast a very scary storm. Which overshadowed the less-real scares of Halloween. Today we cover the ICD-10 codes that could be used in both scenarios:
- In The Wake of the Frankenstorm – The Effects of Sandy or the Greenhouse Effect? Hurricanes, floods and blizzards. There are ICD-10 codes for that. (ICD 10 Fridays)
- ICD-10-CM coding for natural disasters: More detail on how to code disastrous diagnoses. (ICD-10 Trainer)
- Bronchiolitis, asthma, otitis media: Three diagnoses for pediatricians. (ICD-10 essentials for busy physicians who would rather be doing something else)
- Nine Spooky ICD-10 Codes: Everything from eating too much candy to being bit by a vampire. (Success EHS)
- Halloween horrors in ICD-10: The kind of diagnosis codes a night of trick-or-treating could scare up. (ICD-10 Trainer)
- Nuclear Radiation Exposure Leads to Cannibalism? (F50.8 and W88.1xxS): Let's just hope you never have to diagnose cannibalism. (Coder Coach: Code for the Day)
I'm sure next week we will have some attempts to diagnose the election fatigue we're feeling.
This is a weekly feature that I use to highlight practical tips on how to use and understand ICD-10-CM/PCS codes. Please let me know of any other sources that I can include.
