Back  RFI # 151: HI Other Diagnosis Information

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Angela Hendrix

Description

HI Other Diagnosis Information "Required when other condition(s) co-exists with the principal diagnosis, co-exists at the time of admission or develops
subsequently during the patient’s treatment." Does this necessarily mean the segment is required if any of the other HI segment's HI02 (or first HI segment HI03) is valued (ie fields that are marked "used when necessary to report multiple additional co-existing conditions")? Or is this requirement independent of the data in other HI segments?

Response

HI Other Diagnosis segment is required when additional diagnosis needs to be reported and is not the principal diagnosis, or admitting or an injury requiring an E diagnosis code to be reported. HI Other Diagnosis segment could also be required if a diagnosis develops during patient's treatment.
