Narcolepsy icd 9 code

Common Questions and Answers about Narcolepsy icd 9 code


3072999 tn?1356414732 Hi Tink, I am actually a medical coder for a hospital -the ICD-10 code would be G93.5. The ICD-9 code is 384.4. Since ICD-9 is not very specific they may have put a I after to show it is a Chiari Malformation type 1. In ICD-10 it is more specific - G93.5 states Chiari Malformation 1. So I am assuming since the ICD-9 code of 384.4 just states compression of brain they had to add a 1 so it was more specific for their notes.
Avatar f tn 070.51 is the ICD-9-CM code for Acute hepatitis C without mention of hepatic coma. B17.10 – Acute hepatitis C without hepatic coma is the ICD-10 code. In the overall scheme of things ultimately the only person who really cares about those codes is the one processing your health insurance claim. The code might have been on your receipt from the doctor's office or your EOB (Explanation of Benefits).
Avatar m tn t talked to him yet as he is not in his office currently but this has me worried. Did he make a mistake and use the wrong ICD code or could this code also apply to the condition that I was diagnosed with. Thank you.
967168 tn?1477584489 My mom always warned me about this, especially when it comes to life or health insurance. She insisted that if I go to a doc for anything, if they do not formally diagnose an issue don't let it get on your file. I never knew why until I had a run in because of it. I went to a doc 4 or 5 years ago for a peristant cough. He asked me to try advair based solely on my complaint of a persistant cough. he listened to my lungs, no issues.
Avatar f tn 426.9 conduction disorder, unspecified what does that mean? dangerous?
Avatar n tn 428.22 is the ICD diagnosis code for your condition. It simply means that the pumping action of your heart is reduced or impared. Did you get any feedback from your doctor concerning your Ejection fraction (EF%) ? Was this diagnosed on a stress test and if so what were the other findings. Let us know so we can better help you.
967168 tn?1477584489 Not sure if they're the same, but the doc has to put down an ICD-9 code on their "super bill" to get reimbursed by insurance. I'm not saying he'd make something up but will get as close as he can on the ICD-9 code. Don't read too much into it. Ask your doctor to clarify, don't be afraid to ask these questions.
378497 tn?1232143585 Is there an ICD-9 code for "cervical demyelinating myelopathy"?
Avatar f tn This might be a right bundle branch conduction delay, ie a conduction disorder of some unspecified type (check the ICD code), although whether that would be a real worry is also unspecified. 2. The note says that there is a normal echo. This is not the same thing as an ecg. So it does not follow that the ecg is normal because the echo is normal. 3. The note is not validated by the input of a physician, nor subsequently by your individual assessment of the physician and his diagnosis.
Avatar f tn My mother has an ICD and it has gone off a total of 27 times in the last few days. She's only 62. There is not a problem with the device, she just keeps going into Vtach, but she can't be sustained in a normal rhythm. If a normal rhythm doesn't come back, is it just cruel to keep the device firing. Even in a full code patient would you shock them externally this many times without a sustained change in heart rhythm? I just don't want to make her suffer for nothing.
Avatar m tn m reading (most of the sites were clinical articles so only a doctor or psychiatrist could access them) it depends whether the episodes of paranoia come and go or whether they are continuous. That terminology is more specific to the ICD 10 (used for all conditions) than the DSM 4 (used specifically for psychiatric disabilities). It also (and it states this on the sites itself) is neccessary to have a specific diagnostic code for insurance purposes.
232921 tn?1224471661 One nice feature of HEPTIMAX is that it doesn't require a lot of numbers to order... just have the doctor/nurse write the name HEPTIMAX, along with diagnostic ICD-9 code for hepatitis c on the lab order; shouldn't be confusion with this at all.
Avatar f tn what tests should i mark to look for viral load/ geno-type.And an Icd 9 code please. if you can it would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I would describe the pain as deep (feels like it is in the bone), sharp/stabbing (Severity a 7-9 on a scale of 10 - where 10 is excruciating pain) and short in duration (lasts 3-10 seconds). It occurs frequently throughout my day and randomly in different places on my body (i.e. ribs, shoulder, upper and lower arms, fingers, upper and lower legs and sometimes my head). I'm also always fatigued, sleepy and low energy, but I keep myself moving and motivated.
Avatar f tn I was reading up about it and this lead me to read about Narcolepsy as Cataplexy is a unique symptom to this condition. I read about the symptoms and I am now afraid that I may be suffering from it. I have very vivid and sometimes lucid dreams and I wake up almost every hour of the night for short spans of time. Sometimes I cannot tell my dreams from reality and I often hear noises and see things during the night that aren't really there.
867808 tn?1239482070 I always get enough sleep, usually about 8 or 9 hours of sleep, yet I always have to take a naps. These are not short naps either, these naps can last from 4 to even 6 hours long. Usually on weekdays because I have school, I go to bed at about 8 or 9 and wake up at either 5 or 6 because of school. Then, during school, I usually fall asleep during study hall or I have to go to the nurse to lay down because I am so tired and it is almost impossible to stay awake.
