    250.0x w/o manifestation - that's how we have always coded it.

    Default DM manifestation

    I agree that query the provider is the correct step. If however, the provider no longer belongs to the group and is unavailable to answer query, I maintain the coding guidelines do not direct you back to the 250.00, and may not hold up in an audit. Just sayin'. Ponderable point.

    Default Diabetes coding w/o the mainisfestation

    I am struggling with one of my providers as well with this issue. The provider wants me to just code the 250.40, and not the manifestation. The provider will not take the time to listen and understand that I cannot report the 250.40 as a stand alone code. The provider has clearly documented the manifestation. How do I approach this so that he/she understands that this will not be accepted?
