    Default Hand Wrist Osteoarthritis

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to locate a code for hand wrist arthritis, have been able to find a code for the hand and also for the wrist but not a combination.

    Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.

    There is no such combined code for hand wrist osteoarthritis.

    You need to code 715.93 & 715.94 separately.
