ICD 10 code with a minus

Marina Posted Tue 20th of October, 2015 12:04:52 PM

Why do certain ICD 10 codes have a minus following the number? What does this indicate? (example: H11.81-)

SuperCoder Answered Wed 21st of October, 2015 00:30:15 AM

It is a not minus sign. It is a dash (–), which indicate that the code has further divisions. Like in your example, Code H11.81 has divisions like H11.811, H11.812, H11.813 and H11.819.
