Version 2021

Not Valid for Submission

ICD-10:H30.1
Short Description:Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation
Long Description:Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation

Code Classification

  • Diseases of the eye and adnexa (H00–H59)
    • Disorders of choroid and retina (H30-H36)
      • Chorioretinal inflammation (H30)

H30.1 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of disseminated chorioretinal inflammation. 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.

Specific Coding for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation

Non-specific codes like H30.1 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 disseminated chorioretinal inflammation:

  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H30.10 for Unspecified disseminated chorioretinal inflammation
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.101 for Unspecified disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.102 for Unspecified disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.103 for Unspecified disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.109 for Unspecified disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, unspecified eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H30.11 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation of posterior pole
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.111 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation of posterior pole, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.112 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation of posterior pole, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.113 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation of posterior pole, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.119 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation of posterior pole, unspecified eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H30.12 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, peripheral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.121 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, peripheral right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.122 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, peripheral, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.123 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, peripheral, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.129 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, peripheral, unspecified eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H30.13 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, generalized
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.131 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, generalized, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.132 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, generalized, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.133 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, generalized, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.139 for Disseminated chorioretinal inflammation, generalized, unspecified eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H30.14 for Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.141 for Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.142 for Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.143 for Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H30.149 for Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy, unspecified eye

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 H30.1:


Inclusion Terms

Inclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a 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.

Information for Patients


Retinal Disorders

The retina is a layer of tissue in the back of your eye that senses light and sends images to your brain. In the center of this nerve tissue is the macula. It provides the sharp, central vision needed for reading, driving and seeing fine detail.

Retinal disorders affect this vital tissue. They can affect your vision, and some can be serious enough to cause blindness. Examples are
