Thread: DX code for elevated liver enzymes

    Default DX code for elevated liver enzymes

    AAPC: Back to School

    I work as a biller/coder at a large hospital. There is a debate over how to properly code elevated liver enzymes. I have been using 790.5, but others use 790.9, 790.4 and even 277.9. I want to make sure I am coding this properly, and would like everyone to be on the same page. Thanks!
