  • This stage is defined by having chronic renal insufficiency/disease with: being on chronic dialysis (of any type) ---------OR---------- GFR<15 mL/min.

"acute on chronic" is not a thing

If you have Stage 5 CRF, even if not yet on dialysis, you CANNOT get any sort of acute renal failure unless you have had a renal transplant. Thus you situation is not really acute on chronic renal failure. If the Stage 5 was existing before admission, i.e. based on a prior creat clearance<15 mL/min, then it should be a Comorbid Diagnosis even if not prev dialyed. The acute Admit Diagnosis then is going to be either: (i) something such as Hyperkalemia, severe or symptomatic or Fluid overload or any of the uremia codes etc, i.e. a complication of the ESRD OR if they REALLY are being admitted for the Stage 5 (e.g. to install an A-V fistula in their arm and a Vascath), then the Stage 5 CRF should also be an admit dx.

Kidney Transplant Coding Guidelines

For general coding information in the context of kidney transplants see Kidney Transplant Coding Guidelines. This includes how to code patients before, during and after their transplant admission.

Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition

Candidate Combined ICD10 codes

  • Code the cause, if known.
