ICD-10-CM Code C92.1
Chronic myeloid leukemia, BCR/ABL-positive
Non-Billable CodeNon-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 Code C92.1 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the three child codes of C92.1 that describes the diagnosis 'chronic myeloid leukemia, bcr/abl-positive' in more detail.

The ICD code C921 is used to code Chronic myelogenous leukemia
Chronic myelogenous (or myeloid or myelocytic) leukemia (CML), also known as chronic granulocytic leukemia (CGL), is a cancer of the white blood cells. It is a form of leukemia characterized by the increased and unregulated growth of predominantly myeloid cells in the bone marrow and the accumulation of these cells in the blood. CML is a clonal bone marrow stem cell disorder in which a proliferation of mature granulocytes (neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils) and their precursors is found. It is a type of myeloproliferative disease associated with a characteristic chromosomal translocation called the Philadelphia chromosome. CML is now largely treated with targeted drugs called tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) which have led to dramatically improved long-term survival rates since the introduction of the first such agent in 2001. These drugs have revolutionized treatment of this disease and allow most patients to have a good quality of life when compared to the former chemotherapy drugs. In Western countries it accounts for 15-20% of all adult leukemias and 14% of leukemias overall (including the pediatric population).

Coding Notes for C92.1 Info for medical coders on how to properly use this ICD-10 code
Inclusion TermsInclusion Terms are a list of concepts for which a specific code is used. The list of Inclusion Terms is useful for determining the correct code in some cases, but the list is not necessarily exhaustive.
- Chronic myelogenous leukemia, Philadelphia chromosome (Ph1) positive
- Chronic myelogenous leukemia, t(9;22) (q34;q11)
- Chronic myelogenous leukemia with crisis of blast cells
Code Type-1 Excludes:
Type-1 ExcludesType-1 Excludes mean the conditions excluded are mutually exclusive and should never be coded together. Excludes 1 means "do not code here."
- Atypical chronic myeloid leukemia BCR/ABL-negative - instead, use code C92.2-
- Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia - instead, use code C93.1-
- Chronic myeloproliferative disease - instead, use code D47.1
Coding Advice SNOMET-CT
- Possible requirement for morphology code
