Thread: Coding History of CHF

  1. #1

    Default Coding History of CHF

    I am looking for some input on how others code history of CHF. My co-workers and I are having a debate on what is the correct way to code it.

    Default

    I was having this same discussion with my co-worker just the other day. We decided to use "History of other cardiovasuclar disease" :V12.50. I don't know of any other code that would even be close. But if anyone else has a better suggestion . . . I'm all ears!

    Default Maidy

    Thought it was coded as 428.0 per Coding Clinic guidelines for chronic conditions 2nd quarter, 2000, since chronic conditions like chf are taken into consideration for treatment.
