Cracking the Code
What’s the latest code for Vaping-related disorders?
Starting April 1, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) implemented a brand new ICD-10-CM diagnosis code: U07.0, vaping-related disorder. This is being implemented now due to the recent occurrences of vaping related disorders. For all discharge dates on or after April 1, U07.0 will be sequenced as the primary diagnosis IF the physician’s documentation states that the vaping caused the patient’s current condition. It is then followed by that condition as a secondary diagnosis code.
