Thread: Nocturnal Hypoxemia

    Default Nocturnal Hypoxemia

    What is the code for noctural hypoxemia? It sounds that 327.26 is appropriate rather than 799.02. Any comments?

    Try 327.24 because with the 327.26, is says underneath it that you have to code the underlying condition first and if you don't have another condition listed, than you might be better off with the 327.24 code.
