ICD Code A30 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the eight child codes of A30 that describes the diagnosis 'leprosy [hansen's disease]' in more detail.

The ICD code A30 is used to code Leprosy

Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease (HD), is a chronic infection caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae and Mycobacterium lepromatosis. Initially, infections are without symptoms and typically remain this way from 5 to as long as 20 years. Symptoms that develop include granulomas of the nerves, respiratory tract, skin, and eyes. This may result in a lack of ability to feel pain and thus loss of parts of extremities due to repeated injuries or infection due to unnoticed wounds. Weakness and poor eyesight may also be present.
