Not Valid for Submission
C92.0 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of acute myeloblastic leukemia. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.
Specific Coding for Acute myeloblastic leukemia
Non-specific codes like C92.0 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for acute myeloblastic leukemia:
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries
The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code C92.0:
Inclusion TermsInclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia, minimal differentiation
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia (with maturation)
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia 1/ETO
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia M0
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia M1
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia M2
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia with t(8;21)
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia (without a FAB classification) NOS
- Refractory anemia with excess blasts in transformation RAEB T
Type 1 ExcludesType 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code C92.0 are found in the index:
- - Leukemia, leukemic - C95.9
- - acute myeloblastic (minimal differentiation) (with maturation) - C92.0
- - acute myeloid, NOS - C92.0
- - AML (1/ETO) (M0) (M1) (M2) (without a FAB classification) - C92.0
- - myeloid - C92.9
- - acute - C92.0
- LEUKEMIA MYELOID ACUTE-. clonal expansion of myeloid blasts in bone marrow blood and other tissue. myeloid leukemias develop from changes in cells that normally produce neutrophils; basophils; eosinophils; and monocytes.
Information for Patients
Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Also called: AML, ANLL, Acute myelogenous leukemia
Leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells. White blood cells help your body fight infection. Your blood cells form in your bone marrow. In leukemia, however, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells. These cells crowd out the healthy blood cells, making it hard for blood to do its work. In acute myeloid leukemia (AML), there are too many of a specific type of white blood cell called a myeloblast.
AML is the most common type of acute leukemia in adults. This type of cancer usually gets worse quickly if it is not treated. Possible risk factors include smoking, previous chemotherapy treatment, and exposure to radiation.
Symptoms of AML include:
- Shortness of breath
- Easy bruising or bleeding
- Bleeding under the skin
- Weakness or feeling tired
- Weight loss or loss of appetite
Tests that examine the blood and bone marrow diagnose AML. Treatments include chemotherapy, other drugs, radiation therapy, stem cell transplants, and targeted therapy. Targeted therapy uses substances that attack cancer cells without harming normal cells. Once the leukemia is in remission, you need additional treatment to make sure that it does not come back.
