ICD-10-CM Code D47.2
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
D47.2 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of monoclonal gammopathy. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code D472 is used to code Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance
Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS, unknown or uncertain may be substituted for undetermined), formerly benign monoclonal gammopathy, is a condition in which a paraprotein is found in the blood during standard laboratory blood tests. It resembles multiple myeloma and similar diseases, but the levels of antibody are lower, the number of plasma cells (white blood cells that secrete antibodies) in the bone marrow is lower, it has no symptoms or problems, and no treatment is indicated. However, multiple myeloma develops at the rate of about 1.5% a year, so doctors recommend monitoring it yearly. In rare cases, it may also be related with a slowly progressive symmetric distal sensorimotor neuropathy.
