ICD-10-CM Code G25.0
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
G25.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of essential tremor. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code G250 is used to code Essential tremor
Essential tremor (ET, also referred to as benign tremor or familial tremor) is the most common movement disorder; its cause is unknown. It typically involves a tremor of the arms, hands or fingers but sometimes involving the head, vocal cords or other body parts during voluntary movements such as eating and writing. It is distinct from Parkinson's disease—and often misdiagnosed as such—although some individuals have both conditions. Essential tremor is commonly described as an action tremor (it intensifies when one tries to use the affected muscles) or postural tremor (present with sustained muscle tone) rather than a resting tremor, such as is seen in Parkinson’s, which is usually not included among its symptoms.
