ICD-10-CM Code B20
Human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] disease

BILLABLE

| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

B20 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] disease. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code B20 is used to code HIV/AIDS

Human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a spectrum of conditions caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Following initial infection, a person may not notice any symptoms or may experience a brief period of influenza-like illness. Typically, this is followed by a prolonged period with no symptoms. As the infection progresses, it interferes more with the immune system, increasing the susceptibility to common infections like tuberculosis, as well as other opportunistic infections, and tumors that rarely affect people who have working immune systems. These late symptoms of infection are referred to as AIDS. This stage is often also associated with weight loss.

Specialty: Infectious Disease
MeSH Codes: D000163, D000163, D000163
ICD 9 Codes: 42, 43, 44

The red ribbon is a symbol for solidarity with HIV-positive people and those living with AIDS.

Code Includes Notes:
Includes
Includes notes further define, or give examples of, conditions included in the section.
Acquired immune deficiency syndrome [AIDS]
AIDS-related complex [ARC]
HIV infection, symptomatic
codeFirst:
Human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] disease complicating pregnancy, childbirth and the puerperium, if applicable See code O98.7-
Additional Code Note:
Use Additional Code
Use Additional Code note means a second code must be used in conjunction with this code. Codes with this note are Etiology codes and must be followed by a Manifestation code or codes.
Code(s) to identify all manifestations of HIV infection
Code Type-1 Excludes:
Type-1 Excludes
Type-1 Excludes mean the conditions excluded are mutually exclusive and should never be coded together. Excludes 1 means "do not code here."
Asymptomatic human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] infection status - instead, use Code Z21
Exposure to HIV virus - instead, use code Z20.6
Inconclusive serologic evidence of HIV - instead, use Code R75

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] disease (exact match)

This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 042 was previously used, B20 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
