Not Valid for Submission
D64 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of other anemias. 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 Other anemias
Non-specific codes like D64 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 anemias:
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 D64:
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.
- ANEMIA-. a reduction in the number of circulating erythrocytes or in the quantity of hemoglobin.
- ANEMIA DYSERYTHROPOIETIC CONGENITAL-. a familial disorder characterized by anemia with multinuclear erythroblasts karyorrhexis asynchrony of nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation and various nuclear abnormalities of bone marrow erythrocyte precursors erythroid precursor cells. type ii is the most common of the 3 types; it is often referred to as hempas based on the hereditary erythroblast multinuclearity with positive acidified serum test.
- ANEMIA HEMOLYTIC CONGENITAL-. hemolytic anemia due to various intrinsic defects of the erythrocyte.
- ANEMIA HYPOCHROMIC-. anemia characterized by a decrease in the ratio of the weight of hemoglobin to the volume of the erythrocyte i.e. the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration is less than normal. the individual cells contain less hemoglobin than they could have under optimal conditions. hypochromic anemia may be caused by iron deficiency from a low iron intake diminished iron absorption or excessive iron loss. it can also be caused by infections or other diseases therapeutic drugs lead poisoning and other conditions. stedman 25th ed; from miale laboratory medicine: hematology 6th ed p393
- ANEMIA MACROCYTIC-. anemia characterized by larger than normal erythrocytes increased mean corpuscular volume mcv and increased mean corpuscular hemoglobin mch.
- ANEMIA MEGALOBLASTIC-. a disorder characterized by the presence of anemia abnormally large red blood cells megalocytes or macrocytes and megaloblasts.
- ANEMIA MYELOPHTHISIC-. anemia characterized by appearance of immature myeloid and nucleated erythrocytes in the peripheral blood resulting from infiltration of the bone marrow by foreign or abnormal tissue.
- ANEMIA NEONATAL-. the mildest form of erythroblastosis fetalis in which anemia is the chief manifestation.
- ANEMIA REFRACTORY-. a severe sometimes chronic anemia usually macrocytic in type that does not respond to ordinary antianemic therapy.
- ANEMIA SICKLE CELL-. a disease characterized by chronic hemolytic anemia episodic painful crises and pathologic involvement of many organs. it is the clinical expression of homozygosity for hemoglobin s.
- ANEMIA SIDEROBLASTIC-. anemia characterized by the presence of erythroblasts containing excessive deposits of iron in the marrow.
- EQUINE INFECTIOUS ANEMIA-. viral disease of horses caused by the equine infectious anemia virus eiav; infectious anemia virus equine. it is characterized by intermittent fever weakness and anemia. chronic infection consists of acute episodes with remissions.
- FANCONI ANEMIA-. congenital disorder affecting all bone marrow elements resulting in anemia; leukopenia; and thrombopenia and associated with cardiac renal and limb malformations as well as dermal pigmentary changes. spontaneous chromosome breakage is a feature of this disease along with predisposition to leukemia. there are at least 7 complementation groups in fanconi anemia: fanca fancb fancc fancd1 fancd2 fance fancf fancg and fancl. from online mendelian inheritance in man http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/dispomim.cgi?id=227650 august 20 2004
- HYPERSPLENISM-. condition characterized by splenomegaly some reduction in the number of circulating blood cells in the presence of a normal or hyperactive bone marrow and the potential for reversal by splenectomy.
- BETA THALASSEMIA-. a disorder characterized by reduced synthesis of the beta chains of hemoglobin. there is retardation of hemoglobin a synthesis in the heterozygous form thalassemia minor which is asymptomatic while in the homozygous form thalassemia major cooley's anemia mediterranean anemia erythroblastic anemia which can result in severe complications and even death hemoglobin a synthesis is absent.
- ANEMIA IRON DEFICIENCY-. anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores low serum iron concentration low transferrin saturation and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value. the erythrocytes are hypochromic and microcytic and the iron binding capacity is increased.
- ANEMIA HYPOPLASTIC CONGENITAL-. an inborn condition characterized by deficiencies of red cell precursors that sometimes also includes leukopenia and thrombocytopenia.
- ANEMIA DIAMOND BLACKFAN-. a rare congenital hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. the disease is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia occasional neutropenia or thrombocytosis a normocellular bone marrow with erythroid hypoplasia and an increased risk of developing leukemia. curr opin hematol 2000 mar;72:85 94
Information for Patients
Also called: Iron poor blood
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
- Heavy periods
- Colon polyps or colon cancer
- Inherited disorders
- A diet that does not have enough iron, folic acid or vitamin B12
- Blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, or cancer
- Aplastic anemia, a condition that can be inherited or acquired
- G6PD deficiency, a metabolic disorder
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.
