Valid for Submission
Z95.810 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of presence of automatic (implantable) cardiac defibrillator. The code Z95.810 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 Z95.810 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like automatic implantable cardiac defibrillator in situ, biventricular automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator in situ, cardiac defibrillator in situ, cardiac implant in situ, cardiac implant in situ , cardiac pacemaker in situ, etc. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
The code Z95.810 describes a circumstance which influences the patient's health status but not a current illness or injury. The code is unacceptable as a principal diagnosis.
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 Z95.810:
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.
- Presence of automatic (implantable) cardiac defibrillator with synchronous cardiac pacemaker
- Presence of cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D)
- Presence of cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD)
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 Z95.810 are found in the index:
- - Presence (of)
- - cardiac
- - defibrillator (functional) (with synchronous cardiac pacemaker) - Z95.810
- - resynchronization therapy
- - defibrillator - Z95.810
- - CRT-D (cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator) - Z95.810
- - cardioverter-defribillator (ICD) - Z95.810
- - ICD (cardioverter-defibrillator) - Z95.810
- - implanted device (artificial) (functional) (prosthetic) - Z96.9
- - intravascular implant (functional) (prosthetic) NEC - Z95.9
- - cardiac
The Medicare Code Editor (MCE) detects and reports errors in the coding of claims data. The following ICD-10 Code Edits are applicable to this code:
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Automatic implantable cardiac defibrillator in situ
- Biventricular automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator in situ
- Cardiac defibrillator in situ
- Cardiac implant in situ
- Cardiac implant in situ
- Cardiac pacemaker in situ
- Combination internal cardiac defibrillator and pacemaker in situ

Information for Patients
Pacemakers and Implantable Defibrillators
An arrhythmia is any disorder of your heart rate or rhythm. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. Most arrhythmias result from problems in the electrical system of the heart. If your arrhythmia is serious, you may need a cardiac pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). They are devices that are implanted in your chest or abdomen.
A pacemaker helps control abnormal heart rhythms. It uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. It can speed up a slow heart rhythm, control a fast heart rhythm, and coordinate the chambers of the heart.
An ICD monitors heart rhythms. If it senses dangerous rhythms, it delivers shocks. This treatment is called defibrillation. An ICD can help control life-threatening arrhythmias, especially those that can cause sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Most new ICDs can act as both a pacemaker and a defibrillator. Many ICDs also record the heart's electrical patterns when there is an abnormal heartbeat. This can help the doctor plan future treatment.
Getting a pacemaker or ICD requires minor surgery. You usually need to stay in the hospital for a day or two, so your doctor can make sure that the device is working well. You will probably be back to your normal activities within a few days.
