Hi:

Wishing all a "Happy & Prosperous New year 2017"

Can anyone please help with the ICD10 code for external cause of over extension or strenuous movements, mainly the external cause for sprains.

Mapping software doesn't have appropriate ICD10 for E927.0, also E928.9 leads to X58.XXXA. So confused...

Thanks in advance & hoping for expertise helps.

Regards,
Dr. Jemimah,CPC,CPMA

The codes for overuse or strenuous movements were added in the October1, 2016 update. If your system does not have these codes you will need to speak to your vendor. if you have a 2017 codebook, look under X50. Mapping software is not reliable for accurate coding.
