This guideline applies even if the patient is still receiving the tPA at the time they are received into the current facility. The appropriate code for the condition for which the tPA was administered (such as cerebrovascular disease or myocardial infarction) should be assigned first. Code Z92.82 is only applicable to the receiving facility record and not to the transferring facility record. Z93 Artificial opening status Z94 Transplanted organ and tissue status Z95 Presence of cardiac and vascular implants and grafts Z96 Presence of other functional implants Z97 Presence of other devices Z98 Other postprocedural states Assign code Z98.85, Transplanted organ removal status, to indicate that a transplanted organ has been previously removed. This code should not be assigned for the encounter in which the transplanted organ is removed. The complication necessitating removal of the transplant organ should be assigned for that encounter. See section I.C19. for information on the coding of organ transplant complications. Z99 Dependence on enabling machines and devices, not elsewhere classified Note: Categories Z89-Z90 and Z93-Z99 are for use only if there are no complications or malfunctions of the organ or tissue replaced, the amputation site or the equipment on which the patient is dependent. 4) History (of) There are two types of history Z codes, personal and family. Personal history codes explain a patient’s past medical condition that no longer exists and is not receiving any treatment, but that has the potential for recurrence, and therefore may require continued monitoring. Family history codes are for use when a patient has a family member(s) who has had a particular disease that causes the patient to be at higher risk of also contracting the disease. Personal history codes may be used in conjunction with follow-up codes and family history codes may be used in conjunction with screening codes to explain the need for a test or procedure. History codes are also acceptable on any medical record regardless of the reason for visit. A history of an illness, even if no longer present, is important information that may alter the type of treatment ordered. The history Z code categories are: Z80 Family history of primary malignant neoplasm Z81 Family history of mental and behavioral disorders Z82 Family history of certain disabilities and chronic diseases (leading to disablement) Z83 Family history of other specific disorders Z84 Family history of other conditions Z85 Personal history of malignant neoplasm Z86 Personal history of certain other diseases Z87 Personal history of other diseases and conditions Z91.4- Personal history of psychological trauma, not elsewhere classified Z91.5 Personal history of self-harm Z91.8- Other specified personal risk factors, not elsewhere classified Exception: Z91.83, Wandering in diseases classified elsewhere Z92 Personal history of medical treatment Except: Z92.0, Personal history of contraception Except: Z92.82, Status post administration of tPA (rtPA) in a

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
