    Hello

    This is silly question. But I would like to clarify with others. Degenerative joint Disease (DJD) of knee/knee pain Should I code knee pain along with DJD or code only DJD?

    Thank U

    Happy Independence day

    Happy Independence Day to you too! Yes, I would code both the knee pain and the DJD. Some people have DJD without pain, so it's good to code the pain if Dr dictated it.
