Mastering ICD-10: Diabetic Retinopathy and AMD

Have you mastered the latest ICD-10 codes for Diabetic Retinopathy and AMD? If you haven’t don’t fear, Eye Med Management Solutions to the rescue! The tables below include the coding for nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR), wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

It’s important to remember that laterality is now a component in selecting a code. It’s crucial to select the appropriate eye - no, not indeterminate! – for getting reimbursed appropriately from the insurance carriers. The number 1 signifies the right eye, 2 the left eye, and 3 for bilateral.

Type 1 diabetes codes have stayed the same beginning with E10, and E11 for type 2 diabetes. Type 1 and type 2 diabetes codes do not have laterality.
