    AAPC: Back to School
    If the physician lists diabetes, and diabeties with ketoacidosis, should I code both or just 250.10 for the Ketoacidosis?

    Default Diabetes with ketoacidosis answer

    Just the 250.10 Diabetes with Ketoacidosis. Coding diabetes and the diabetes with ketoacidosis would be redundant. The 250.10 covers everything. Hope that helps

    Thumbs up

    Just 250.10 is enough as it includes both diabetes as well as diabetic ketoacidosis

    Diabetes Mellitus With Ketoacidosis, Type Two or unspecified type, Not Stated As Uncontrolled; Fifth-digit 0 is for use with type two patients, even if the patient requires insulin
    Diabetic: {acidosis} {Ketosis} without mention of coma

    Hope this will help you
    May the almighty showers peace and mercy on you
