If you look up renal insufficiency in your ICD 9 code book the code listed is 593.9 unspecified disorder of kidney and ureter. Acute is indexed under that and also is 593.9 and then is chronic 585.9 chronic kidney disease, unspecified which includes chronic renal insufficiency. Do otherse feel this is wrong as well? :confused: I don't see that it is. :confused:
