ICD10 Code for Non-ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Question ICD10 Code for Non-ischemic Cardiomyopathy
    Medical Coding Books
    What is the appropriate ICD10 code for non-ischemic cardiomyopathy? It doesn't seem like it should be the unspecified code for cardiomyopathy. Would the code I42.8 other cardiomyopathies be the best code? Thanks!

    I work in cardiology and we use I42.8 for non-ischemic.

    Good day. My question is how do you get to the I42.8 code going through the Alpha index? I do not see anything that is "Specified NEC" that would take you to the I42.8. My research shows there are 4 types of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (this is according to the Cleveland Clinic) Dilated, Hypertrophic, Restrictive, and ARVD. All four types have a different Numeric code.

    Just curious as to what I am missing?
