You would think that something like this would be easy to find...

Doc saw an elderly patient and marked that the patient has "Poor Balance". What code do you use for this?

Thanks.

Look at disturbance gait. I don't have my ICD-9 book with me so I can tell you what the exact code is (I'm on vacation:))

No such luck - just sitting at home (in Nebraska no less) waiting the go back to work on Monday. I'm kind of a workaholic. Thank God I can code all day on the AAPC Website :) but next vacation I'll bring my ICD-9!
