250.50 and 362.01,362.02

Do we still have to use 250.50 from ICD10 version to bill 362.01 and 362.02?

Thanks for your question. You will now find that there are more combination codes available in ICD-10 which allow you to code your diagnoses with only one code. In order to provide you with an answer, we will need the specific diagnosis that your provider has given you.

We always billed 362.01 or 362.02 with 250.50 to get reimbursement. Is it same to ICD 10?

ICD-10 has provided combination codes for diabetes with complications. Take a look at the codes in E11.3~ and E08.3~ series. You will find codes relating to Type 2 diabetes with retinopathy. Use your documentation to determine which code will be most appropriate. Hope this helps.
