    Question ICD-9: neuropathy due to chemotherapy

    AAPC: Back to School
    My physician has documented "neuropathy secondary to chemotherapy".

    I figure 357.6 is my neuropathy code, but I can't find the appropriate E-code. Or am I heading the wrong direction altogether? Thanks

    Antineoplastic chemotherapy is E933.1.

    Do you still use the E code even if the patient had received chemo years ago but still has the neuropathy due to past chemo?

  4. #4


    No...instead, you would use V87.41, Personal history of antineoplastic chemotherapy.
