    Question Sleep Studies ICD-9 coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any definitive (black and white) guidance on the correct ICD-9 code for UARS (Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome)? I'm getting a multitude of input, 780.50 - 780.59, but I haven't found anything that supports a specific code that I can reference. I'm leaning toward 780.56, but not without much frustration.

    3M coding gave me the dx for Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome as 327.8.

    Hope this helps.

    Per coding clinic 2Q 2007 page 6, 327.8 is the diagnosis code for UARS.
