  1. Default decreased renal function

    Does anyone know the ICD 9 code for decreased renal function? TIA

  2. #2
    Would 788.69 (other abnormality of urination) work?

  3. Default maybe

  4. Smile
    I think the code should be 593.9.

    Wow! Variety of codes for one disorder!

    It should be 593.9 which states any renal insufficiency or disease NOS.


  7. Default use 794.4
    I will suggest to use 794.4, instead of 593.9

    Question asked here is "decreased renal function" in which specific function of kidney is not mentioned.

    In this scenario, Provider was not able to conclude which function of kidney is decreased. So we will consider this case under signs & symptom of kidney and use 794.4 code. If document says any specific function then we will use 593.xx series.

    If I'm wrong do let me know.
