What sleep disturbance ICD codes can I use?

There are several sleep disturbance ICD codes you can use and many are quite specific to certain sleep-related problems, like sleep apnea, insomnia, and narcolepsy. These are the following:

  • G47.9 - Sleep disorder, unspecified

This ICD-10 code is meant to be used on a patient confirmed to have a sleep disorder. The specific sleep disorder is not specified. If a person has a sleep disorder, then their sleep is disturbed to a certain degree, with some having to deal with severe levels of sleep disturbance.

  • G47.8 - Other sleep disorders

This ICD-10 code is meant to be used on a patient confirmed to have a sleep disorder. This ICD-10 code is best use if the specific sleep disorder that a patient has doesn’t have a specific ICD-10 code.

  • Z72.820 - Sleep deprivation

This ICD-10 code is meant to be used on a person confirmed to be suffering from sleep deprivation.

These are the most general sleep disturbance-related ICD-10 codes. Again, if you have identified the specific causes of the sleep disturbances your patients deal with, use specific ICD codes like those meant for sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia, and more.

Are these sleep disturbance ICD codes billable?

Yes. All three of these sleep disturbance-related ICD-10 codes are valid and billable.
