Re: ICD 10 code for Hypernatremia

Good afternoon,

I need clarification if E87.0 is a billable code for hypernatremia or does it require a 5th digit for 2017.

Thanks,
Vivian Ramos, CPC

If you look up ICD 10 GEMS on the CMS website you can get a list of all DX code changes, full index and Tabular sections as well.
