    Default acromion type II

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to find a code for acromion type II and am not having any luck.
    Any suggestions?

    See website: www.nehealthbook.com

    Basically there are 3 types of acromions. Type I - normal acromion,
    Type II - a variation of angle of the acromion with which you were born with. Type III - acromion is curved down impinging the supraspinatous tendon.

    I code Type II acromion with 759.89(indicating congenital anomoly) and 719.81 (narrowing space in the ACJ area).
