Which VA Diagnostic Codes Will Give You The Highest VA Disability Rating?
Before we dive into the details of VA diagnostic codes, let’s take a quick look at which codes will give you the highest VA disability rating. The two best VA diagnostic codes that guarantee the highest VA disability rating are Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).
Now, let’s take look at the difference between an SCT code and a ICD 10 VA diagnostic code. An SCT code is an acronym for Standardized Clinical Terminology Code, which is used to classify medical diagnoses in the United States. This type of coding system was developed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to better organize how medical diagnoses are assigned and tracked.
ICD 10 VA Diagnostic codes, on the other hand, are used to classify diseases and disorders according to the World Health Organization’s International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10). ICD 10 is a comprehensive coding system for health conditions that includes tens of thousands of codes, which can be used to diagnose, measure and monitor the treatment of diseases throughout the world.
When considering VA disability benefits, the two most common diagnosis codes are ICD 10 F43.12 PTSD Primary and ICD 10 F32.2 Major Depressive Disorder. If a veteran is diagnosed with either of these conditions, they may be eligible for a 100% VA disability rating, which would provide them with the highest level of compensation.
