The holiday season is upon us and we at the Charge Capture Blog want to wish you a very happy holiday and a wonderful new year. We won’t sing you carols or send you any baked goods, but we will give you some holiday-themed ICD-10 codes to keep you on track with your ICD-10 transition.
Z63.1 - Problems in relationship with in-laws
An issue so ubiquitous they had to create a real diagnosis for it. (Don’t tell my mother-in-law I said that.)
W11.XXXA - Fall on and from ladder, initial encounter
It’s easy to get a little overeager at the Christmas tree lot. Consider this a warning when you’re trying to string lights on a ten-foot tree in your living room.
W55.32XA - Struck by other hoof stock, initial encounter
The unfortunate casualty of the popular and morbid holiday song, “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer."
T63.79 - Toxic effect of contact with other venomous plant
This is what happens when you would rather eat the mistletoe than kiss the person you’re under it with. Not a good sign for either party involved.
V80.73A - Animal-rider or occupant of animal-drawn vehicle injured in collision with streetcar
Those San Francisco trolleys have a mind of their own, and Santa and his reindeer claim they weren’t at fault. What’s more unbelievable, there’s an ICD-10 code for that!
