    Default Need ICD9 code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone help with a ICD9 for otitis conjunctivitis.

    Are you sure this isn't a mistake? I would show the doc the ICD-9 book the page with otitis and also the page with conjunctivitis and have him/her pick the code based on the descriptions in the book.

    Perhaps the patient has an otitis and conjunctivitis? You need to know the type of otitis (ie media). I would check the chief complaint and then take the note and the charge slip to the provider for clarification.
