    Default Perimenopause codes?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for advice on how to code "perimenopause". I code for an OB/GYN practice, and the doctors frequently use this term for the symptoms in the pre-menopausal phase, though it does not appear in the ICD-9.

    Look at Category 627.
