    Default Dx code for Chronic Allograft Nephropathy

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm trying to pin down a specific Dx code for CAN (Chronic Allograft Nephropathy) any assistance would be appreciated.

    What about 583.9 "Nephritis/Nephropathy with unspecified pathological lesion" and 996.81 "Complications of transplanted kidney"? You will also need E codes for the 996 code. I hope this helps.

    It does. Much thanks. I'm not so sure though about using an E code.
