  6. USER QUESTIONS

  7. Question Question: The latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention underlying cause of death data for : The latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention underlying cause of death data for Massachusetts indicates a 38% increase in the age Massachusetts indicates a 38% increase in the age- -adjusted death rate from alcohol from calendar year 2019 to 2020. The FY2016 implementation of ICD from calendar year 2019 to 2020. The FY2016 implementation of ICD- -10 add specific nomenclature for gradients of blood alcohol levels. To what extent are the new blood add specific nomenclature for gradients of blood alcohol levels. To what extent are the new blood alcohol gradient codes being used in the Case Mix data? alcohol gradient codes being used in the Case Mix data? ICD-10-CM Codes for Blood Alcohol Levels adjusted death rate from alcohol- -induced causes 10- -CM included an update to CM included an update to induced causes Answer: There are eleven new ICD-10-CM Y90 codes referencing blood alcohol levels. Nine of the codes include specific gradients for blood alcohol levels. See Table 1 below. The codes are being used in the outpatient emergency department (ED) visit data. The volume of patients with blood alcohol codes trended upward in FY2018, with more than twice the number of males than females having blood alcohol codes. See Figure 1 below. Table 1. ICD-10-CM Codes for Blood Alcohol Levels ICD-10-CM Code Y90 Y90.0 Y90.1 Y90.2 Y90.3 Y90.4 Y90.5 Y90.6 Y90.7 Y90.8 Y90.9 Description Evidence of alcohol involvement determined by blood alcohol level Blood alcohol level of less than 20 mg/100 ml Blood alcohol level of 20-39 mg/100 ml Blood alcohol level of 40-59 mg/100 ml Blood alcohol level of 60-79 mg/100 ml Blood alcohol level of 80-99 mg/100 ml Blood alcohol level of 100-119 mg/100 ml Blood alcohol level of 120-199 mg/100 ml Blood alcohol level of 200-239 mg/100 ml Blood alcohol level of 240 mg/100 ml or more Presence of alcohol in blood, level not specified Figure 1.

  8. ICD-10-CM Codes for Blood Alcohol Levels Answer (continued): The higher rate of males with recorded blood alcohol levels in ED data aligns with the higher rate and upward trend in alcohol-induced deaths for males in Massachusetts. See Figure 1 below. While both the Massachusetts male and female alcohol-induced age-adjusted death rates per 100,000 trended upward, the death rate for males remains lower than the national rate for males. See Figure 2 below. However, at the height of the pandemic in calendar year 2020, the alcohol-induced death rate for Massachusetts females surpassed the national rate for females. See Figure 3 below.

  9. Answer (continued): When analyzing ICD-10-CM blood alcohol levels, keep in mind that the ICD-10-CM Y90 codes for blood alcohol levels are reported in either the associated diagnosis field or the external cause field, not in the principal diagnosis field. Over the past six years (FY2016-FY2021), the top emergency department principal diagnoses for those tested for alcohol levels were alcohol abuse with intoxication and alcohol dependence with Intoxication. For those who did not have a principal diagnosis of alcohol abuse or dependence, head injuries were the leading anatomic trauma associated with high blood alcohol levels, chest pains were the leading physiologic disorder, and major depression the leading psychiatric disorder. See Table 1 below. Each year since ICD-10-CM implementation, on average 20,839 patients have ED recorded blood alcohol level and consistently, each year, the most frequent recorded level on over 40% of patients tested was the highest blood alcohol level of 240 mg/100 or more. See Figure 1 below. ICD-10-CM Codes for Blood Alcohol Levels Table 1. FY2016 FY2021 Top ED Non-Alcohol Principal Diagnoses with Recorded Blood Alcohol Levels Rank 1 2 3 4 5 Anatomic Injuries Physiologic disorders Chest pain Other chest pain Syncope and collapse Nausea with vomiting Epigastric pain Psychiatric/Behavioral Disorders Major depressive disorder Suicidal ideations Anxiety disorder Altered mental status Other psychoactive substance abuse Unspecified injury of head Laceration without foreign body of scalp Laceration without foreign body of other part of the head Contusion of other part of head Abrasion of other part of head Figure 1.

  10. ICD-10-CM Codes for Blood Alcohol Levels Answer (continued): As with the outpatient ED visit data, a higher volume of males in the inpatient hospital care setting have recorded blood alcohol levels, paralleled by the same pronounced FY2019 increase in overall testing volume. See Figure 1 below. However, when comparing the age distribution of patients with recorded blood alcohol levels by care setting (ED vs Inpatient) for the six-year period of FY2016 through FY2019, the age distribution for females has a higher proportion of younger patients than does the male age distribution. See Figure 2 below. The inpatient hospital care setting has a higher proportion of older patients for both males and females compared to the ED visit care setting. See Figure 3 below. Figure 1. FY2016 to FY2021 Volume of Inpatient Hospitalizations by Sex with Recorded Blood Alcohol Level 11,406 12,500 10,969 10,652 10,653 9,925 10,500 8,628 8,500 Females 6,500 5,135 Males 4,815 4,750 4,679 4,438 3,798 4,500 2,500 FY2016 FY2017 FY2018 FY2019 FY2020 FY2021 Figure 2.

  11. Question Question: I am applying for ED visit data to study the emotional/social sequelae of the pandemic on families, : I am applying for ED visit data to study the emotional/social sequelae of the pandemic on families, such as the impact of loss of a loved one. I previously used ICD such as the impact of loss of a loved one. I previously used ICD- -9 9- -CM V health status to study forms of family disruption and wanted to determine whether the newer ICD health status to study forms of family disruption and wanted to determine whether the newer ICD- -10 health status codes are consistently being used in the outpatient emergency department visit data. health status codes are consistently being used in the outpatient emergency department visit data. Disappearance and Death of a Family Member CM V- -codes on factors influencing codes on factors influencing 10- -CM CM Answer: Yes, there are granular ICD-10-CM Z-codes for family life disruption (See Table 1 below) and social life disruption (See Table 2). Hospitals are using these codes to report on factors influencing the health status of patients visiting the outpatient emergency. For example, even though there has been a 21% decrease in overall ED Visit volume from 2016 to 2021, the volume of patients whose health status was impacted by the disappearance and loss of a family member (ICD-10-CM Z634) has more than tripled. See Figure 1 below. Table 1. ICD-10-CM Codes for Family Life Disruption Table 2. ICD-10-CM Codes for Social Life Disruption ICD-10-CM Z633 Z6331 Z6332 Z634 Z635 Description Absence of family member Absence of family member due to military deployment Other absence of family member Disappearance and death of family member Disruption of family by separation and divorce Other stressful life events affecting family and household Stress on family due to return of family member from military deployment Alcoholism and drug addiction in family Other stressful life events affecting family and household Other problems related to primary support group, including family circumstances Problems in relationship with spouse or partner ICD-10-CM Z600 Z608 Z602 Description Problems of adjustment to life-cycle transitions Other problems related to social environment Problems related to living alone Target of (perceived) adverse discrimination and persecution Acculturation difficulty Problems related to social environment Social exclusion and rejection Problem related to social environment, unspecified Z605 Z603 Z60 Z604 Z609 Z637 Z6371 Z6372 Z6379 Z63 Z630 600 482 Figure 1.

  12. Provider IDs Question Question: The Case Mix data has organization identifiers for facilities. Can those same : The Case Mix data has organization identifiers for facilities. Can those same identifiers be used in the MA APCD to identify the parallel claims data associated with identifiers be used in the MA APCD to identify the parallel claims data associated with the hospital submitters in the case mix data? the hospital submitters in the case mix data? Answer: No, the case mix hospital organization identifiers are facility IDs assigned by CHIA and are not used in the MA APCD. However, the case mix data does include the physician license number assigned by the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Medicine. The MA APCD Provider filing specifications does contain a field for License ID (PV06) which insurance carriers are ask to report the state license number for the provider identified in the Plan Provider ID field (PV002). For a physician, this is the medical license for a non-doctor this is the practice license. It is important to keep in mind that the Plan Provider ID is not always for a person but can be persons, facilities or other entities involved in claims transactions. The license ID reported in the Case Mix data is only for persons, not facilities. While both hospitals in the MA APCD and in Case Mix data contain the same facility names, the facility names are standardized in the Case Mix data. In the MA APCD, one carrier's data might include the full name of a facility while another carrier might abbreviate that name. Therefore, the MA APCD facility names are not reported in a standardized fashion across all carriers.
