Version 2021

Not Valid for Submission

ICD-10:D75
Short Description:Other and unsp diseases of blood and blood-forming organs
Long Description:Other and unspecified diseases of blood and blood-forming organs

Code Classification

  • Diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs and certain disorders involving the immune mechanism (D50–D89)
    • Other disorders of blood and blood-forming organs (D70-D77)
      • Other and unsp diseases of blood and blood-forming organs (D75)

D75 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 and unspecified diseases of blood and blood-forming organs. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2022 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.

Unspecified diagnosis codes like D75 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.

Specific Coding for Other and unsp diseases of blood and blood-forming organs

Non-specific codes like D75 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 and unsp diseases of blood and blood-forming organs:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D75.0 for Familial erythrocytosis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D75.1 for Secondary polycythemia
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D75.8 for Other specified diseases of blood and blood-forming organs
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D75.81 for Myelofibrosis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D75.82 for Heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT)
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D75.83 for Thrombocytosis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D75.89 for Other specified diseases of blood and blood-forming organs
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D75.9 for Disease of blood and blood-forming organs, unspecified
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D75.A for Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency without 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 the code D75:


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.

Information for Patients


Blood Disorders

Your blood is living tissue made up of liquid and solids. The liquid part, called plasma, is made of water, salts and protein. Over half of your blood is plasma. The solid part of your blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Blood disorders affect one or more parts of the blood and prevent your blood from doing its job. They can be acute or chronic. Many blood disorders are inherited. Other causes include other diseases, side effects of medicines, and a lack of certain nutrients in your diet.

Bone Marrow Diseases

Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside some of your bones, such as your hip and thigh bones. It contains stem cells. The stem cells can develop into the red blood cells that carry oxygen through your body, the white blood cells that fight infections, and the platelets that help with blood clotting.

With bone marrow disease, there are problems with the stem cells or how they develop:

Causes of bone marrow diseases include genetics and environmental factors. Tests for bone marrow diseases include blood and bone marrow tests. Treatments depend on the disorder and how severe it is. They might involve medicines, blood transfusions or a bone marrow transplant.
