  1. Default ICD_9 for remote MI

    Hello,
    Does anyone know the dx for remote MI. Isn't this like a late effect or deficits from prior MI? Is there a code for it? Thanks!

    You would need more info but if it is in a remote area then I would use 410.8- the 5th digit being the episode 0,1,2

    If you mean remote as in old or healed, the code is 412 if the pt has no symptoms
