MitraClip’s ICD 10 procedure code of 02UG3JZ is used by Hospitals to get NTAP payments over and above the DRG payment amount. The largest use of the MitraClip ICD 10 Code is in DRG 229 - Other Cardiothoracic Procedures without Major Complications and Comorbidities. The all cause readmission rate at the DRG is 16.42% versus 13.92% when MitraClip is used.
Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) is a classification system which assigns a hospital stay to one of approximately 750 DRG codes. Dexur also has a more in depth database of patients who have Mitral valve diseases like Mitral regurgitation and Mitral valve prolapse and can benefit from MitraClip procedures.
