Valid for Submission

S00.219D is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of abrasion of unspecified eyelid and periocular area, subsequent encounter. The code S00.219D is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

The ICD-10-CM code S00.219D might also be used to specify conditions or terms like abrasion and/or friction burn of eyelids and/or periocular area, abrasion of eye region, abrasion of eyelid, abrasion of periorbital region of face or scratch of eye region. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.

S00.219D is a subsequent encounter code, includes a 7th character and should be used after the patient has completed active treatment for a condition like abrasion of unspecified eyelid and periocular area. According to ICD-10-CM Guidelines a "subsequent encounter" occurs when the patient is receiving routine care for the condition during the healing or recovery phase of treatment. Subsequent diagnosis codes are appropriate during the recovery phase, no matter how many times the patient has seen the provider for this condition. If the provider needs to adjust the patient's care plan due to a setback or other complication, the encounter becomes active again.

Unspecified diagnosis codes like S00.219D 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.

Information for Patients


Eye Injuries

The structure of your face helps protect your eyes from injury. Still, injuries can damage your eye, sometimes severely enough that you could lose your vision. Most eye injuries are preventable. If you play sports or work in certain jobs, you may need protection.

The most common type of injury happens when something irritates the outer surface of your eye. Certain jobs such as industrial jobs or hobbies such as carpentry make this type of injury more likely. It's also more likely if you wear contact lenses.

Chemicals or heat can burn your eyes. With chemicals, the pain may cause you to close your eyes. This traps the irritant next to the eye and may cause more damage. You should wash out your eye right away while you wait for medical help.
