Valid for Submission
I05.9 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of rheumatic mitral valve disease, unspecified. The code I05.9 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code I05.9 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like chronic rheumatic heart disease, chronic rheumatic mitral valve, chronic rheumatic valvulitis, chronic valvulitis, disorder of cardiac valve following procedure , disorder of mitral valve prosthesis, etc.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like I05.9 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.
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 I05.9:
Inclusion TermsInclusion 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.
- Rheumatic mitral (valve) disorder (chronic) NOS
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code I05.9 are found in the index:
- - Disease, diseased - See Also: Syndrome;
- - Endocarditis (chronic) (marantic) (nonbacterial) (thrombotic) (valvular) - I38
- - Fever (inanition) (of unknown origin) (persistent) (with chills) (with rigor) - R50.9
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Chronic rheumatic heart disease
- Chronic rheumatic mitral valve
- Chronic rheumatic valvulitis
- Chronic valvulitis
- Disorder of cardiac valve following procedure
- Disorder of mitral valve prosthesis
- Endocarditis of prosthetic mitral valve
- Inflammation associated with cardiac implant
- Mitral valve disorder
- Rheumatic disease of mitral valve
Diagnostic Related Groups - MS-DRG Mapping
|MS-DRG||MS-DRG Title||MCD||Relative Weight|
|306||CARDIAC CONGENITAL AND VALVULAR DISORDERS WITH MCC||05||1.5037|
|307||CARDIAC CONGENITAL AND VALVULAR DISORDERS WITHOUT MCC||05||0.8684|
The relative weight of a diagnostic related group determines the reimbursement rate based on the severity of a patient's illness and the associated cost of care during hospitalization.
Convert I05.9 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code I05.9 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Heart Valve Diseases
Your heart has four valves. Normally, these valves open to let blood flow through or out of your heart, and then shut to keep it from flowing backward. But sometimes they don't work properly. If they don't, you could have
- Regurgitation - when blood leaks back through the valve in the wrong direction
- Mitral valve prolapse - when one of the valves, the mitral valve, has "floppy" flaps and doesn't close tightly. It's one of the most common heart valve conditions. Sometimes it causes regurgitation.
- Stenosis - when the valve doesn't open enough and blocks blood flow
Valve problems can be present at birth or caused by infections, heart attacks, or heart disease or damage. The main sign of heart valve disease is an unusual heartbeat sound called a heart murmur. Your doctor can hear a heart murmur with a stethoscope. But many people have heart murmurs without having a problem. Heart tests can show if you have a heart valve disease. Some valve problems are minor and do not need treatment. Others might require medicine, medical procedures, or surgery to repair or replace the valve.

Strep is short for Streptococcus, a type of bacteria. There are several types. Two of them cause most of the strep infections in people: group A and group B.
Group A strep causes
- Strep throat - a sore, red throat. Your tonsils may be swollen and have white spots on them.
- Scarlet fever - an illness that follows strep throat. It causes a red rash on the body.
- Impetigo - a skin infection
- Toxic shock syndrome
- Cellulitis and necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating disease)
Group B strep can cause blood infections, pneumonia and meningitis in newborns. A screening test during pregnancy can tell if you have it. If you do, intravenous (IV) antibiotics during labor can save your baby's life. Adults can also get group B strep infections, especially if they are 65 or older or already have health problems. Strep B can cause urinary tract infections, blood infections, skin infections and pneumonia in adults.
Antibiotics are used to treat strep infections.
