IsDBNull() function is what you need:

if IsDBNull (BillMasterTable.Rows(0).Item("AccID")) Then
  ...

If you are trying to trap errors when loading from a db this is how I do it.

I.e
Dim MyAccID As Integer = CheckForNullInteger(BillMasterTable.Rows(0).Item("AccID"))

    Public Function CheckForNullInteger(ByVal Value As Object) As Integer
        If Value Is System.DBNull.Value Then
        Else
            Return Value
        End If
    End Function
 
    Public Function CheckForNullDate(ByVal Value As Object) As DateTime
        If Value Is System.DBNull.Value Then
        Else
            Return Value
        End If
    End Function
 
    Public Function CheckForNullString(ByVal Value As Object) As String
        If Value Is System.DBNull.Value Then
            Return ""
        Else
            Return Value
        End If
    End Function
