coding DM with pedal neuropathy

  1. Default coding DM with pedal neuropathy
    Medical Coding Books
    How would you code DM with pedal neuropathy?

  2. Default
    Was the neuropathy definitively linked to DM? If so, I would code 250.6x, 337.1 (or maybe 357.2)

  3. #3
    Default DM and pedal neuropathy
    If the documentation links the neuropathy to the DM, then you would use 250.6x and 357.2. If it is not linked, then you use 250.0x and 356.9.
