It is 191 days before the move to ICD-10 becomes a must-do. Lest the deadline slip your mind, MedPage Today is spotlighting some of those thousands of new codes that might just be getting a bit too granular.
Today’s “coming-of-spring”-related code:
Y93.H2: Activity, gardening and landscaping (There is a separate code for digging, shoveling, and raking.)
J30.1: Allergic rhinitis due to pollen
V96.03XA: Balloon collision injuring occupant, initial encounter
V97.810: Civilian aircraft involved in air transport accident with military aircraft
Y93.D1: Activity, knitting and crocheting
Z73.1: Type A behavior pattern
V10.3XXA: Person boarding or alighting a pedal cycle injured in collision with pedestrian or animal, initial encounter
W22.02XD: Walked into lamp post, subsequent encounter
Y92.253: Opera house as the place of occurrence of the external cause
