    Default DX code: CAD with cardiomyopathy

    AAPC: Back to School
    What dx code(s) would you use for CAD with cardiomyopathy? I'm thinking 414.9 Chronic ischemic heart disease, unspecified and 425.4 Other primary cardiomyopathies. Does anyone have a more appropiate code(s)?

    I would use 414.01 and 425.4
