  1. Default DM w/CAD
    Medical Coding Books
    If a provider states "CAD secondary to DM" how would you code it? 250.8x + 414.xx? or 250.7x + 414.xx?
    And does anyone know if CAD can indeed be a manifestation of DM?
    Thanks all!

    guess I should also ask if we should code it at all; re if cad can be a manifestation.

  3. Default
    While fairly rare in my limited experience, I have seen diabetic CAD called by our providers, and I have seen it on outside op reports as well

    I would code 250.8x, 414.xx
