Not Valid for Submission
E85 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of amyloidosis. 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 Amyloidosis
Non-specific codes like E85 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 amyloidosis:
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 E85:
Type 2 ExcludesType 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.
- Alzheimer's disease G30.0
- IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAIN AMYLOIDOSIS-. a nonproliferative disorder of the plasma cell characterized by excessive production and misfolding of immunoglobulin light chains that form insoluble amyloid fibrils see amyloid deposits in various tissues. clinical features include liver failure; multiple myeloma; nephrotic syndrome; restrictive cardiomyopathy and neuropathies.
- AMYLOIDOSIS-. a group of sporadic familial and/or inherited degenerative and infectious disease processes linked by the common theme of abnormal protein folding and deposition of amyloid. as the amyloid deposits enlarge they displace normal tissue structures causing disruption of function. various signs and symptoms depend on the location and size of the deposits.
- AMYLOIDOSIS FAMILIAL-. diseases in which there is a familial pattern of amyloidosis.
- AMYLOID NEUROPATHIES FAMILIAL-. inherited disorders of the peripheral nervous system associated with the deposition of amyloid in nerve tissue. the different clinical types based on symptoms correspond to the presence of a variety of mutations in several different proteins including transthyretin prealbumin; apolipoprotein a i; and gelsolin.
- CEREBRAL AMYLOID ANGIOPATHY FAMILIAL-. a familial disorder marked by amyloid deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of cerebral cortex and meninges.
Information for Patients
Amyloidosis occurs when abnormal proteins called amyloids build up and form deposits. The deposits can collect in organs such as the kidney and heart. This can cause the organs to become stiff and unable to work the way they should.
There are three main types of amyloidosis:
- Primary - with no known cause
- Secondary - caused by another disease, including some types of cancer
- Familial - passed down through genes
Symptoms can vary, depending upon which organs are affected. Treatment depends on the type of amyloidosis you have. The goal is to help with symptoms and limit the production of proteins. If another disease is the cause, it needs to be treated.
