Title: ICD Codes for POIS?
Post by: Kit on April 30, 2021, 05:40:36 PM
Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well!

I am trying to file for federal disability claims (U.S. social security disability or SSD) as I have now resigned from my job due to POIS and I am now looking for a new job. I will be okay as I have support from family, but I do need to gain the income I lost due to POIS and I want to start working again as soon as possible. According to my doctor, an ICD code is required to file for state disability claims but I am unsure if federal disability claims will also require an ICD code. I wanted to ask this question first before my SSD phone appointment. I asked my clinics about ICD codes for POIS and no ICD codes for POIS exists in their systems. I was wondering, has anyone in the U.S. or other country been able to use an ICD code or use no ICD code for POIS for disability claims from state or federal or some other disability resource?

Thanks for reading!

I couldn't find POIS in the "release version" of ICD-11 (https://icd.who.int/browse11/l-m/en). Searched for "orgasm".

This is interesting: If I type in "post orgasmic" in the search field, a suggested result comes up which actually mentions POIS by name! However, when I click it and I'm taken to the page in question, HA02.Y (https://icd.who.int/browse11/l-m/en#/http%3a%2f%2fid.who.int%2ficd%2fentity%2f3494362%2fmms%2fother), there is no description text whatsoever. (See second image.)

EDIT: I'm so starved for any progress that I'm actually quite excited to see POIS even mentioned as a dead-end search suggestion in a WHO document.  ::)
