  • ICD-10 Code for Status Post-Vitrectomy Surgery


    Question: Is there an ICD-10 code for status post vitrectomy surgery? Of the ones I have looked at, none pertain to retina.

    Answer: ICD-10 does not have a unique code for this specific post-procedural diagnosis. Best to use Z98.89 Other specified postprocedural states. Depending upon the payer, Z codes provide supporting documentation but may not be primary payable diagnoses.
