ICD-10-CM Code I12
Hypertensive chronic kidney disease
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 I12 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the two child codes of I12 that describes the diagnosis 'hypertensive chronic kidney disease' in more detail.
- I12 Hypertensive chronic kidney disease NON-BILLABLE
The ICD code I12 is used to code Hypertension
Hypertension (HTN or HT), also known as high blood pressure, is a long term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. Blood pressure is expressed by two measurements, the systolic and diastolic pressures, which are the maximum and minimum pressures, respectively, in the arterial system. The systolic pressure occurs when the left ventricle is most contracted; the diastolic pressure occurs when the left ventricle is most relaxed prior to the next contraction. Normal blood pressure at rest is within the range of 100–140 millimeters mercury (mmHg) systolic and 60–90 mmHg diastolic. Hypertension is present if the resting blood pressure is persistently at or above 140/90 mmHg for most adults; different numbers apply to children.

Code Includes Notes:
IncludesIncludes notes further define, or give examples of, conditions included in the section.

- Hypertensive nephropathy
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."
- Hypertension due to kidney disease (I15.0, I15.1) - instead, use code I15.0
- Renovascular hypertension - instead, use code I15.0
- Secondary hypertension - instead, use code I15.-
Code Type-2 Excludes:
Type-2 ExcludesType-2 Excludes means the excluded conditions are different, although they may appear similar. A patient may have both conditions, but one does not include the other. Excludes 2 means "not coded here."
- Acute kidney failure - instead, use code N17.-
