Icd 10 code

    What code would be used for "borderline hypothyroidism" in ICD 10?

  2. Default
    E03.8

    As per my knowledge there is no specific code for borderline hypothyroidism in ICD-10 as well in ICD-9, so should use other specified code.

    Regards,

    Your code would be E03.8 as there is no code in ICD-10 code set for "borderline". It would be unspecified.

    The ICD-10 CM guideline for borderline conditions state that unless the classification has a specific entry for the condition as borderline then code it as though it exists. So code it as hypothyroidism since there is no entry for hypothroidism under the key term borderline.
