Does anyone have any experience with the new ICD-9 billing codes for sleep, especially the codes for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)??
780.53-0 used to be the code for OSA. Now there are 2 main codes for OSA:
780.53 (hypersomnia with sleep apnea, unspecified) and 327.23 (obstructive sleep apnea).
What I have been doing is using 780.53 for suspected cases of OSA, and 327.23 for confirmed cases. For upper airway resistance syndrome, I usually code 780.53. Does anyone know if this is correct?? Does anyone have any references?? I bought my copy of The International Classification of Sleep Disorders-2nd edition this summer, before the new ICD-9 codes were available. Have ICD-9 codes been added to the International Classification of Sleep Disorders yet?
