BILLABLE

| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

H47.091 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other disorders of optic nerve, not elsewhere classified, right eye. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code H470 is used to code Ischemic optic neuropathy

Ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) is the loss of structure and function of a portion of the optic nerve due to obstruction of blood flow to the nerve (i.e. ischemia). ION is typically classified as either anterior ischemic optic neuropathy or posterior ischemic optic neuropathy according to the part of the optic nerve that is affected. People affected will often complain of a loss of visual acuity and a visual field, the latter of which is usually in the superior or inferior field.

Other disorders of optic nerve (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code H47.091 and a single ICD9 code, 377.49 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
