Thread: elevated creatinine kinase ICD 9

  1. #1

    Default elevated creatinine kinase ICD 9

    What is the code for elevated creatinine kinase? I'm not sure if I should code 790.5 (other nonspecific abnormal serum enzyme levels) or 790.6 (other abnormal blood chemistry)

    Shouldn't you check with the lab tech to verify that the test they are running is specific to what you are coding?
