Am I correct to understand that the new guidelines state that there is a presumed relationship with HTN-CHF and CKD? I have read and re-read the guidelines. I just want to make sure that the CHF no longer must be stated by the doctor in order for us to code in the I13.X series. I hope this makes sense. Believe it or not, I went to class yesterday for my CEU's and the instructor still was not clear on this. Thank you for your help!!!
