Clinical Information

Specific Coding for Acquired hemolytic anemia

Non-specific codes like D59 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 acquired hemolytic anemia:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.0 for Drug-induced autoimmune hemolytic anemia
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D59.1 for Other autoimmune hemolytic anemias
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.10 for Autoimmune hemolytic anemia, unspecified
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.11 for Warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.12 for Cold autoimmune hemolytic anemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.13 for Mixed type autoimmune hemolytic anemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.19 for Other autoimmune hemolytic anemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.2 for Drug-induced nonautoimmune hemolytic anemia
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D59.3 for Hemolytic-uremic syndrome
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.30 for Hemolytic-uremic syndrome, unspecified
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.31 for Infection-associated hemolytic-uremic syndrome
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.32 for Hereditary hemolytic-uremic syndrome
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.39 for Other hemolytic-uremic syndrome
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.4 for Other nonautoimmune hemolytic anemias
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.5 for Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria [Marchiafava-Micheli]
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D59.6 for Hemoglobinuria due to hemolysis from other external causes

Patient Education


Anemia

If you have anemia, your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body. The most common cause of anemia is not having enough iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that gives the red color to blood. It carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.

Anemia has three main causes: blood loss, lack of red blood cell production, and high rates of red blood cell destruction.

Conditions that may lead to anemia include:

Anemia can make you feel tired, cold, dizzy, and irritable. You may be short of breath or have a headache.

Your doctor will diagnose anemia with a physical exam and blood tests. Treatment depends on the kind of anemia you have.
