How is obesity coded?Obesity due to a specified cause, such as a thyroid disorder (240-246), is coded to the underlying condition. These codes can be assigned as the principal diagnosis when the underlying cause has not been identified; otherwise, assign code 278.xx as an additional code. Code 278.03 obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) is assigned only on the basis of the physician's diagnostic statement. Subcategory 278.0, Overweight and obesity requires that an additional code (V85.0-V85.54) for the body mass index (BMI) be assigned if known. If the patients BMI fluctuates during an inpatient admission and the BMI is linked to a clinical condition such as obesity, malnutrition, or anorexia nervosa, the code for the most severe BMI value recorded during the admission is assigned.
