    Default lack of satiety - Is there an ICD-9 code

    Is there an ICD-9 code for 'lack' of satiety? Any ideas? Thanks.

    I've thought about this one for awhile and the best I can come up with is 307.59 Other and unspecified disorders of eating Other.

    Hopefully this helps,

    There's no evidence of a non-organic origin. I see early satiety is 780.94 (no lack of satiety of course). With that code here, I think 780.99, other general symptoms, is a pretty good fit.

    Good point, this should probably be taken to the provider for further clarification.

    Satiety. 780.99 is the code we use - I work for a group of surgeons, one of whom does endoscopy [EGD]. He uses this dx frequently. If indicated, we also include 278.0x

    I agree with adding the 278.0X if documented. I just read something this morning about that and that it does have a profound effect on the reimbursement decision by the payer, if added as an additional dx.
