    How would I code status post MI? There isn't anything under status post but have been told there is a code.

    It depends on timing. If the MI occurred less than 8 weeks ago you assign the 410.x code witht he 5th digit of 2, If the 8 weeks has past then you assign the 412 code.

    I agree with Mitchell, but i think only when the reason for visit is for mi we should use the 5th digit as 2.
