Specific Coding for Other leukemias of specified cell type

Non-specific codes like C94 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 other leukemias of specified cell type:

  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C94.0 for Acute erythroid leukemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.00 for Acute erythroid leukemia, not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.01 for Acute erythroid leukemia, in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.02 for Acute erythroid leukemia, in relapse
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C94.2 for Acute megakaryoblastic leukemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.20 for Acute megakaryoblastic leukemia not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.21 for Acute megakaryoblastic leukemia, in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.22 for Acute megakaryoblastic leukemia, in relapse
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C94.3 for Mast cell leukemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.30 for Mast cell leukemia not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.31 for Mast cell leukemia, in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.32 for Mast cell leukemia, in relapse
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C94.4 for Acute panmyelosis with myelofibrosis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.40 for Acute panmyelosis with myelofibrosis not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.41 for Acute panmyelosis with myelofibrosis, in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.42 for Acute panmyelosis with myelofibrosis, in relapse
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.6 for Myelodysplastic disease, not classified
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C94.8 for Other specified leukemias
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C94.80 for Other specified leukemias not having achieved remission

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 C94:


Type 1 Excludes

Type 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.

Information for Patients


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, 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.

There are different types of leukemia, including

Leukemia can develop quickly or slowly. Chronic leukemia grows slowly. In acute leukemia, the cells are very abnormal and their number increases rapidly. Adults can get either type; children with leukemia most often have an acute type.Some leukemias can often be cured. Other types are hard to cure, but you can often control them. Treatments may include chemotherapy, radiation and stem cell transplantation. Even if symptoms disappear, you might need therapy to prevent a relapse.
