The ICD 10 Code for spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy is G80.0.
G80.0 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement. The 2018 edition of ICD-10-CM G80.0 became effective on October 1, 2018.
The spastic quadriplegia ICD 10 code is a newer code that has replaced the spastic quadriplegia ICD 9 code. ICD-9-CM G80.0 should only be used for claims with a date of service on or before September 30, 2015. For claims with a date of service on or after October 1, 2015, use an equivalent ICD-10-CM code (or codes).
Spastic quadriplegia is a form of cerebral palsy where a patient has lost use of his or her entire body. Of the three types of spastic cerebral palsy, it’s the most severe. A patient is unable to use his or her legs, arms and body. The spastic quadriplegia ICD 10 code G80.0 is different from the spastic quadriparesis ICD 10 code. The condition quadriparesis, also referred to as tetraparesis, is characterized by weakness in all four limbs, both arms and legs. The weakness may be temporary or permanent. The spastic quadriparesis ICD 10 code is G82.50 and can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
Spastic quadriplegia is typically caused by brain damage before, during or shortly after birth. Many factors can contribute to an infant developing brain damage, including fetal infections, maternal infections, medical negligence or exposure to toxins.
