Diagnosis Code Reminders and Updates


Reminder that ICD-10 coding is needed after dates of service 10/1/2015. Please note that your Access Advantage membership includes free access to ZirMed’s online coding tools. Please contact Amanda Ratliff or Anna Nelson for more information and demo.


Diagnosis codes 294.10/F02.80 (Dementia in diseases classified elsewhere without behavioral disturbance), and 294.11/F02.81 (Dementia in diseases classified elsewhere with behavioral disturbance) are included in an existing Medicare Code Editor edit, which does not allow these diagnoses to be coded as principal.
