Benign prostatic hyperplasia with lower urinary tract symptoms. N40. 1 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
INTRODUCTION. Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) occur in men and women increasingly with age. In men, LUTS is often concurrent with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is a histologic diagnosis that refers to the proliferation of smooth muscle and epithelial cells within the prostate [1,2].
ICD-10-CM Code for Benign prostatic hyperplasia without lower urinary tract symptoms N40. 0.
About half of men with BPH develop an enlarged prostate gland, called benign prostatic enlargement (BPE), and among these, about half develop bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). BOO and/or changes in smooth muscle tone and resistance that can accompany BPH often result in lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).
ICD-Code N40. 1 is a billable ICD-10 code used for healthcare diagnosis reimbursement of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms.
Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) describe many different urination problems in men. You may hear your doctor use the term LUTS if you have: Poor or intermittent urine stream. Straining to pee.
Overview. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) — also called prostate gland enlargement — is a common condition as men get older. An enlarged prostate gland can cause uncomfortable urinary symptoms, such as blocking the flow of urine out of the bladder. It can also cause bladder, urinary tract or kidney problems.

LUT stands for “look-up table.” A LUT is a tool that lets filmmakers, editors, and colorists save particular color grades as a template. Think of a LUT as a color preset that a filmmaker can readily turn to when working on a project.
The test can be done using ultrasound or by inserting a catheter into your bladder after you urinate to measure how much urine is left in your bladder. 24-hour voiding diary. Recording the frequency and amount of urine might be especially helpful if more than one-third of your daily urinary output occurs at night.
LUTS include frequency, urgency, hesitancy, dysuria, haematuria, reduced flow, dribbling, nocturia, incontinence and pelvic pain.
Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are a common complaint among aging men and are often caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). A number of medical treatments for LUTS/BPH exist, such as α-blockers, 5α-reductase inhibitors, anticholinergics, phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors, and combination therapies.
The gold standard for the management of BPH is surgical treatment by transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). However, in older adults, medical therapy is preferred to surgical intervention when possible.
Although there is no cure for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate, there are many useful options for treating the problem. Treatments focus on prostate growth, which is the cause of BPH symptoms. Once prostate growth starts, it often continues unless medical therapy is started.
Through effects on detrusor muscle and urinary sphincter function, several categories of prescription drugs can worsen LUTS,2,3 including antidepressants, antihistamines, bronchodilators, anticholinergics and sympathomimetics. By increasing urine volume, diuretics are also associated with LUTS.
N40.1 is a valid billable ICD-10 diagnosis code for Benign prostatic hyperplasia with lower urinary tract symptoms . It is found in the 2021 version of the ICD-10 Clinical Modification (CM) and can be used in all HIPAA-covered transactions from Oct 01, 2020 - Sep 30, 2021 .
When an Excludes2 note appears under a code it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together. A “code also” note instructs that two codes may be required to fully describe a condition, but this note does not provide sequencing direction. The sequencing depends on the circumstances of the encounter.
DO NOT include the decimal point when electronically filing claims as it may be rejected. Some clearinghouses may remove it for you but to avoid having a rejected claim due to an invalid ICD-10 code, do not include the decimal point when submitting claims electronically.
There is also an instructional note under category P07 to code the birth weight before the gestational age. A patient visits the ED for ringing in the ears, nausea, vomiting and drowsiness. During the history taking, the provider learns the patient has been taking 2 aspirins every hour for the last three days.
This does not apply in this case, so a code from T31 is not required (unless reporting for a burn unit or other facility requiring the additional data). The codes in the burn section have a note to use additional external cause codes to identify the source, place and intent of the burn.
600.91 is a legacy non-billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of hyperplasia of prostate, unspecified, with urinary obstruction and other lower urinary symptoms (luts). This code was replaced on September 30, 2015 by its ICD-10 equivalent.
The prostate is a gland in men. It helps make semen, the fluid that contains sperm. The prostate surrounds the tube that carries urine out of the body. As men age, their prostate grows bigger. If it gets too large, it can cause problems. An enlarged prostate is also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Most men will get BPH as they get older. Symptoms often start after age 50.
