Specific Coding for Purpura and other hemorrhagic conditions

Non-specific codes like D69 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 purpura and other hemorrhagic conditions:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.0 for Allergic purpura
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.1 for Qualitative platelet defects
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.2 for Other nonthrombocytopenic purpura
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.3 for Immune thrombocytopenic purpura
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D69.4 for Other primary thrombocytopenia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.41 for Evans syndrome
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.42 for Congenital and hereditary thrombocytopenia purpura
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.49 for Other primary thrombocytopenia
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D69.5 for Secondary thrombocytopenia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.51 for Posttransfusion purpura
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.59 for Other secondary thrombocytopenia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.6 for Thrombocytopenia, unspecified
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D69.8 for Other specified hemorrhagic conditions

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 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.

Bleeding Disorders

Normally, if you get hurt, your body forms a blood clot to stop the bleeding. For blood to clot, your body needs cells called platelets and proteins known as clotting factors. If you have a bleeding disorder, you either do not have enough platelets or clotting factors or they don't work the way they should.

Bleeding disorders can be the result of other diseases, such as severe liver disease or a lack of vitamin K. They can also be inherited. Hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder. Bleeding disorders can also be a side effect of medicines such as blood thinners.

Various blood tests can check for a bleeding disorder. You will also have a physical exam and history. Treatments depend on the cause. They may include medicines and transfusions of blood, platelets, or clotting factor.
