The clinicians and coders have to hit there head every day with thousands of codes, so here is the ICD 10 For Hematuria, the code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. ICD-10-CM ‘R31.9 is for Hematuria.
- R31.0 Gross hematuria
- R31.1 Benign essential microscopic hematuria
- R31.2 Other microscopic hematuria

Hematuria is the presence of blood in a person’s urine. The two types of hematuria are:
- Gross Hematuria—when a person can see the blood in his or her urine
- Microscopic Hematuria—when a person cannot see the blood in his or her urine, yet it is seen under a microscope
Gross hematuria produces pink, red or cola-colored urine due to the presence of red blood cells. It takes little blood to produce red urine, and the bleeding usually isn’t painful. Passing blood clots in your urine, however, can be painful.
Bloody urine often occurs without other signs or symptoms.
