Age-indeterminate DVT acute or chronic?

  1. Default Age-indeterminate DVT acute or chronic?
    New Call-to-action
    Hi, wondering how to code for an "age-indeterminate" DVT? Acute or chronic? Left popliteal for example.

    Thank you

    Per a AAPC webinar I watched today, I believe this would be coded as Chronic. You should check out the Webinar if you have access to them.
