Atherosclerosis and Angina

I was researching the code for atherosclerosis with angina. Per the ICD-10 manual appears the correct diagnosis code would be I25.9 Chronic Ischemic heart disease, Unspecified which is not associated with an HCC. Is that correct?

When I code atherosclerosis with angina I get I25.119 which does hold an HCC value of 88 for the CMS V22 model.

I70.90 and I20.9


Atherosclerosis was not specific enough so you have to assign I70.90.

You can't use any combination code since the type of atherosclerosis was not specific enough, so you have to code I20.9 separately.


If they say atherosclerosis of coronary artery with angina, then you can assign I25.119.
