    Default DOE - Do not use 786.09??

    I was using 786.09 for Dyspnea on Exertion, however, check this out from Reference.com

    Dyspnea on exertion (DOE or exertional dyspnea) indicates dyspnea that occurs (or worsens) during physical activity. Dyspnea on exertion is considered medically normal and does not warrant the ICD-9 786.09
    Thoughts?

    If the provider assessed it then I would think it is beyond the "normal" range. I have to disagree with them.

    I would code it if the provider assessed it.

    Just my opinion,
