Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
D69.51 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of posttransfusion purpura. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code D695 is used to code Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is the development of thrombocytopenia (a low platelet count), due to the administration of various forms of heparin, an anticoagulant. HIT predisposes to thrombosis, the abnormal formation of blood clots inside a blood vessel, and when thrombosis is identified the condition is called heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (HITT). HIT is caused by the formation of abnormal antibodies that activate platelets. If someone receiving heparin develops new or worsening thrombosis, or if the platelet count falls, HIT can be confirmed with specific blood tests.
