    Default Hematemesis by history - ICD-9-CM Code

    AAPC: Back to School
    A patient was seen in our office for an E/M visit. In the assessment portion of the note, the doctor recorded the following: Hematemesis by history, and Bipolar. I cannot find a "personal history of..." code that would be appropriate for the hematemesis. What ICD-9-CM Code would be appropriate? Thank you all for your help

    without looking at the rest of the note,
    the only history I could find with the digestive system are
    and V47.3
    but I'm not sure if they would work.
