Question
Treatment, NOS--Heme & Lymphoid Neoplasms: Where are the guidelines for coding treatment located for Hematopoietic diseases that were diagnosed prior to 2010?

Discussion


Answer
For cases diagnosed 1/1/2010 and later, use the Hematopoietic & Lymphoid Neoplasm Manual for instructions on coding aspirin, blood thinners/anti-clotting medications, and transfusions in the field “Other Treatment.”

For cases diagnosed 5/1/2002 – 12/31/2009, use the instructions in the SEER Manual AND the instructions in “Abstracting and Coding Guide for the Hematopoietic Diseases” to code aspirin, blood thinners/anti-clotting medications, and transfusions in the field “Other Treatment.”

For cases diagnosed 1/1/2001 – 04/30/2002 use the instructions in the SEER Manual for collection of aspirin, blood thinners/anti-clotting medications, and transfusions in the field “Other Treatment.”

Prior to 1/1/2001, these treatment modalities were not collected.
