    Default Madit 2

    AAPC: Back to School
    I recently started billing ICD implants. I have an implant that has MADIT 2 as the first listed DX along with 425.4. Is there a code to use for MADIT 2??
    Thanks in advance for the info.

    MADIT II was a clinical trial. MADIT II patients have survived a previous MI and have an impaired LV, but no prior history of arrhythmia. The heart failure or prior MI [428.xx, 412] must be reflected as the principle DX rather than an arrhythmia.
