Valid for Submission
T38.814D is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of poisoning by anterior pituitary [adenohypophyseal] hormones, undetermined, subsequent encounter. The code T38.814D 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 T38.814D might also be used to specify conditions or terms like corticotropin poisoning of undetermined intent, poisoning by corticotropin, poisoning by somatotropin, somatotrophin poisoning of undetermined intent, thyrotrophic hormone poisoning , thyrotrophic hormone poisoning of undetermined intent, etc. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
T38.814D is a subsequent encounter code, includes a 7th character and should be used after the patient has completed active treatment for a condition like poisoning by anterior pituitary [adenohypophyseal] hormones undetermined. 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.
When coding a poisoning or reaction to the improper use of a medication (e.g., overdose, wrong substance given or taken in error, wrong route of administration), first assign the appropriate code from categories T36-T50. The poisoning codes have an associated intent as their 5th or 6th character (accidental, intentional self-harm, assault and undetermined. If the intent of the poisoning is unknown or unspecified, code the intent as accidental intent. The undetermined intent is only for use if the documentation in the record specifies that the intent cannot be determined. Use additional code(s) for all manifestations of poisonings.
The appropriate 7th character is to be added to each code from block Hormones and their synthetic substitutes and antag, NEC (T38). Use the following options for the aplicable episode of care:
- A - initial encounter
- D - subsequent encounter
- S - sequela
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Corticotropin poisoning of undetermined intent
- Poisoning by corticotropin
- Poisoning by somatotropin
- Somatotrophin poisoning of undetermined intent
- Thyrotrophic hormone poisoning
- Thyrotrophic hormone poisoning of undetermined intent

Information for Patients
Hormones are your body's chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues or organs. They work slowly, over time, and affect many different processes, including
- Growth and development
- Metabolism - how your body gets energy from the foods you eat
- Sexual function
Endocrine glands, which are special groups of cells, make hormones. The major endocrine glands are the pituitary, pineal, thymus, thyroid, adrenal glands, and pancreas. In addition, men produce hormones in their testes and women produce them in their ovaries.
Hormones are powerful. It takes only a tiny amount to cause big changes in cells or even your whole body. That is why too much or too little of a certain hormone can be serious. Laboratory tests can measure the hormone levels in your blood, urine, or saliva. Your health care provider may perform these tests if you have symptoms of a hormone disorder. Home pregnancy tests are similar - they test for pregnancy hormones in your urine.
