ICD-10-CM Code G30
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 G30 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the four child codes of G30 that describes the diagnosis 'alzheimer's disease' in more detail.
- G30 Alzheimer's disease NON-BILLABLE
The ICD code G30 is used to code Neurodegeneration
Neurodegeneration is the umbrella term for the progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including death of neurons. Many neurodegenerative diseases including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Huntington's occur as a result of neurodegenerative processes. Such diseases are incurable, resulting in progressive degeneration and/or death of neuron cells. As research progresses, many similarities appear that relate these diseases to one another on a sub-cellular level. Discovering these similarities offers hope for therapeutic advances that could ameliorate many diseases simultaneously. There are many parallels between different neurodegenerative disorders including atypical protein assemblies as well as induced cell death. Neurodegeneration can be found in many different levels of neuronal circuitry ranging from molecular to systemic.

Coding Notes for G30 Info for medical coders on how to properly use this ICD-10 code
Code Includes Notes:
IncludesIncludes notes further define, or give examples of, conditions included in the section.
- Alzheimer's dementia senile and presenile forms
Additional Code Note:
Use Additional CodeUse 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 to identify:
- Delirium, if applicable See Code F05
- Dementia with behavioral disturbance See code F02.81
- Dementia without behavioral disturbance See code F02.80
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."
- Senile degeneration of brain NEC - instead, use code G31.1
- Senile dementia NOS - instead, use Code F03
- Senility NOS - instead, use code R41.81
