I often come across the diagnosis of dementia with psychosis. I have not been able to find a code that combines the two and end up coding them both. Can anyone give me a better code to use?

Is the dementia due to any other diseases, like Parkinsons for example? If so, that might make it a little easier to find a better code to match.

I saw in the index under 'psychosis' and found "psychosis - specified type NEC" which is 294.8 and this is code for "dementia NOS". I guess the answer is there = 294.8 !!

I would use the 294.8 to code the dementia but I would also use another code to specify the psychosis, especially if there is another mental disorder (ie parkinsons) that it may be related to. You can always query the provider as well if you are not sure. It is ok to use more than one code for this if it is documented in the chart. Go with your gut...

I take my words back....actually it was my mistake...I saw under "Psychosis, organic - specified type". I agree with Leslie..
