What peritoneal dialysis ICD codes can I use?
If you’re looking for peritoneal dialysis ICD codes, there are several that you can pick from, some of which are related to encounters before the peritoneal dialysis and some for complications related to the procedure. Here they are:
- Z49.02 - Encounter for fitting and adjustment of peritoneal dialysis catheter
This ICD-10 code is meant to be used on a patient with a peritoneal dialysis catheter fitted and adjusted to them.
- Z49.32 - Encounter for adequacy testing for peritoneal dialysis
This ICD-10 code is meant to be used on a patient tested to see if they’re eligible for peritoneal dialysis.
- T85.621A - Displacement of an intraperitoneal dialysis catheter, initial encounter
This ICD-10 code is meant to be used on a patient confirmed to be dealing with a displacement of an intraperitoneal dialysis catheter. The code has an initial encounter label, meaning they receive active treatment for this complication.
- T85.631A - Leakage of an intraperitoneal dialysis catheter, initial encounter
This is similar to Item 3, but this time, the complication is a leakage of the intraperitoneal dialysis catheter.
- T85.691A - Other mechanical complication of intraperitoneal dialysis catheter, initial encounter
This is similar to Items 3 and 4. Still, this time, it’s a general label for any mechanical complications of an intraperitoneal dialysis catheter, so long as the difficulty doesn’t have a specific ICD code (like the previous two).
- T85.71XA - Infection and inflammatory reaction due to peritoneal dialysis catheter, initial encounter
This is similar to the three prior items, but the complication is not mechanical. The difficulty comes in the form of an infection and inflammation that results as a reaction to the presence of a peritoneal dialysis catheter.
Do note that Items 3 to 6 have variations to them. The ones we included have the initial encounter label. They have versions with the subsequent encounter and sequela labels. The former means they are in recovery and still under active treatment. The latter means they are dealing with the aftereffects of the complication.
Are these peritoneal dialysis ICD codes billable?
Yes. All of those, as mentioned above, peritoneal dialysis-related ICD codes are valid and billable.
Clinical information about peritoneal dialysis:
Peritoneal dialysis is a treatment given to patients suffering from kidney failure. When a kidney fails, it can no longer filter out waste from the blood well enough, and because it can’t function well anymore (or not at all), it can be life-threatening.
Through peritoneal dialysis, a tube will be connected to the abdomen. This tube will be used to let cleansing fluid flow into the abdomen. The peritoneum will then filter and remove the waste from the blood through the cleansing fluid, and then the fluid, along with the waste, will flow out of the abdomen and be thrown away. This is a nifty treatment because it can be done in the hospital, at work, and at home! It’s best if the person undergoing this dialysis knows how to conduct it themself or if they have someone who can do it for them.
Do note that this treatment can give rise to complications like leakage, displacement, bacterial infections, and inflammation.
