    Default Diabetic Neuropathy NOS

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a clinician indicated DM2 uncontrolled and diabetic neuropathy, but does not specify the type of diabetic neuropathy, what code would you use? I have 250.62 for the diabetes, but not sure what to use for the neuropathy. The exam indicates decreased light touch sens lat plantar R foot. Would you use 357.2?

    Yes, you are right. 250.62, 357.2.

    Diabetes Coding with “neuropathy” -
    DM with peripheral neuropathy codes to 250.6x and 357.2
    DM with peripheral autonomic neuropathy codes to 250.6x and 337.1

    If it is just a DM with peripheral neuropathy NOS - the proper code is 250.62 and 357.2.

    You got it!
