Need help with ICD 10 Code for Groin Strain

For groin strains, depending on location, consider S76.811A Strain of other specified muscles, fascia and tendons at thigh level, right thigh, initial encounter, S76.812A Strain of other specified muscles, fascia and tendons at thigh level, left thigh, initial encounter, or S76.819A Strain of other specified muscles, fascia and tendons at thigh level, unspecified thigh, initial encounter. All of the above are for an initial encounter (final character A). ICD-10-CM guidelines indicate that if the patient is in the “routine” healing status, even if the patient is “new” to the provider, the appropriate 7th digit is “D” (subsequent encounter).

I would use S76.811A, S76.812A, or S76.819A (whichever laterality applies). Hope this helps!
