    • H52.0 – Hypermetropia
    • H52.1 – Myopia
    • H52.2 – Astigmatism
    • H52.3 – Anisometropia and aniseikonia
    • H52.4 – Presbyopia

    • H52.6 – Other disorders of refraction
    • H52.7 – Unspecified disorder of refraction

    H52.2 is NOT a complete or valid ICD 10 diagnosis code.

    You should code each health care encounter to the level of certainty known for that encounter.
    When sufficient clinical information is not known or available to assign a more specific code, it is acceptable to report the appropriate unspecified code.

    Questions related to H52.2 Astigmatism

    The word ‘Includes’ appears immediately under certain categories to further define, or give examples of, the content of thecategory.


    A type 1 Excludes note is a pure excludes. It means ‘NOT CODED HERE!’ An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time
    as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.


    A type 2 Excludes note represents ‘Not included here’. An Excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition it is excluded from
    but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together.


    A code also note instructs that 2 codes may be required to fully describe a condition but the sequencing of the two codes is discretionary, depending on the severity of the conditions
    and the reason for the encounter.


    Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology. For such conditions the ICD-10-CM has a coding
    convention that requires the underlying condition be sequenced first followed by the manifestation. Wherever such a combination exists there is a ‘use additional code’ note
    at the etiology code, and a ‘code first’ note at the manifestation code. These instructional notes indicate the proper sequencing order of the codes, etiology followed by manifestation.


    In most cases the manifestation codes will have in the code title, ‘in diseases classified elsewhere.’ Codes with this title area component of the etiology / manifestation convention.
    The code title indicates that it is a manifestation code. ‘In diseases classified elsewhere’ codes are never permitted to be used as first listed or principal diagnosis codes.
    They must be used in conjunction with an underlying condition code and they must be listed following the underlying condition.

    The inclusion terms indicate some of the conditions for which that code number may be assigned. They may be synonyms with the code title or in the case of “other specified” codes, the terms may
    also provide a list of various conditions included within a classification code.


    For codes less than 6 characters that require a 7th character, a placeholder X should be assigned for all characters less than 6. The 7th character must always be the 7th character of a code.

    ICD-10-CM Code H52.2
    Astigmatism

    NON-BILLABLE

    Non-Billable Code

    Non-Billable means the code is not sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis. Use a child code to capture more detail.

    |
    ICD-10 from 2011 – 2016

    ICD Code H52.2 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the three child codes of H52.2 that describes the diagnosis ‘astigmatism’ in more detail.

    The ICD code H522 is used to code Refractive error

    A refractive error, or refraction error, is an error in the focusing of light by the eye and a frequent reason for reduced visual acuity.
