Board 2010-04-09 - Recommendation accepted


Diagnosis R 62.8 lack of expected normal physiological development and R62.0 delayed milestone are sometimes used for patients > 18 years. Our coding experts mean this is correct coding, but the grouping result is DRG 470.

We therefore suggest that 00P02 is removed from R62.8.

After the change the patients are grouped to DRG’s for outpatient consultations - in Norway DRG 910O.


Expert Network 2010-03-12

The meeting recommended to accept the proposal that 00P02 is removed from R62.8.


Technical change

00P02 is removed from R62.8.

DRG change

R62.8 is accepted as principal diagnosis of adults.
