what is Occ HTN? This is how the dx is written on the progress note and nothing else mentioned.

occasional HTN?? Don't use the HTN (401.9) code for that. There is a code for "undiagnosed" HTN but it should be properly documented before using that code. I would query the provider on that.

I'm taking a leap but....

Occ is one abbreviation for Occlusal. When I search for Occlusal Hypertension, it defaults to.........

"may or may not accompany a decrease in occlusal vertical dimension. It may occur without a decrease in occlusal vertical dimension in patients with a preponderant activity of the jaw-closing musculature, as in chronic gum chewers or patients with muscular hypertension."

I'm with Leslie, though...check with your provider to be certain.
