Specific Coding for Other autoimmune hemolytic anemias

Non-specific codes like D59.1 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 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

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 this diagnosis code:


Type 2 Excludes

Type 2 Excludes
A type 2 excludes note represents "Not included here". An excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate.

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.
