Thread: ICD 9 for catheter

  1. #1

    Default ICD 9 for catheter

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a combination code for "Urinary retention with indwelling suprapubic tube secondary to urethral stricture".

    or would I code separately, urinary retention, the catheter, and the stricture

    How do I find a code for catheter. I can't find anything for catheter, tube, or indwelling.

    Thank you.
