Version 2019 Non-Billable Code
ICD-10: O36.019
Short Description:Maternal care for anti-D antibodies, unspecified trimester
Long Description:Maternal care for anti-D [Rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester

Not Valid for Submission

ICD-10 O36.019 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of maternal care for anti-d [rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester. The code is NOT valid for the year 2019 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

Consider the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity:

  • O36.0190 - Maternal care for anti-D [Rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester, not applicable or unspecified
  • O36.0191 - Maternal care for anti-D [Rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester, fetus 1
  • O36.0192 - Maternal care for anti-D [Rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester, fetus 2
  • O36.0193 - Maternal care for anti-D [Rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester, fetus 3
  • O36.0194 - Maternal care for anti-D [Rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester, fetus 4
  • O36.0195 - Maternal care for anti-D [Rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester, fetus 5
  • O36.0199 - Maternal care for anti-D [Rh] antibodies, unspecified trimester, other fetus

Code Classification

  • Pregnancy, childbirth and the puerperium (O00–O99)
    • Maternal care related to the fetus and amniotic cavity and possible delivery problems (O30-O48)
      • Maternal care for other fetal problems (O36)

Diagnostic Related Groups

The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC). The diagnosis code O36.019 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V36.0 applicable from 10/01/2018 through 09/30/2019.

Rh Incompatibility

There are four major blood types: A, B, O, and AB. The types are based on substances on the surface of the blood cells. Another blood type is called Rh. Rh factor is a protein on red blood cells. Most people are Rh-positive; they have Rh factor. Rh-negative people don't have it. Rh factor is inherited through genes.

When you're pregnant, blood from your baby can cross into your bloodstream, especially during delivery. If you're Rh-negative and your baby is Rh-positive, your body will react to the baby's blood as a foreign substance. It will create antibodies (proteins) against the baby's blood. These antibodies usually don't cause problems during a first pregnancy.

But Rh incompatibility may cause problems in later pregnancies, if the baby is Rh-positive. This is because the antibodies stay in your body once they have formed. The antibodies can cross the placenta and attack the baby's red blood cells. The baby could get Rh disease, a serious condition that can cause a serious type of anemia.

Blood tests can tell whether you have Rh factor and whether your body has made antibodies. Injections of a medicine called Rh immune globulin can keep your body from making Rh antibodies. It helps prevent the problems of Rh incompatibility. If treatment is needed for the baby, it can include supplements to help the body to make red blood cells and blood transfusions.

ICD-10 Footnotes

General Equivalence Map Definitions
The ICD-10 and ICD-9 GEMs are used to facilitate linking between the diagnosis codes in ICD-9-CM and the new ICD-10-CM code set. The GEMs are the raw material from which providers, health information vendors and payers can derive specific applied mappings to meet their needs.

  • Approximate Flag - The approximate flag is on, indicating that the relationship between the code in the source system and the code in the target system is an approximate equivalent.
  • No Map Flag - The no map flag indicates that a code in the source system is not linked to any code in the target system.
  • Combination Flag - The combination flag indicates that more than one code in the target system is required to satisfy the full equivalent meaning of a code in the source system.
