    How would you code this? nonfunctioning dialysis catheter.

  2. #2


    996.1 Mechanical complication of other vascular device ........ dialysis catheter surgically created.
    996.56 due to peritoneal dialysis catheter.
    Encounter code -V code for dialysis and dialysis catheter care 56.3x, if that was the reason for encounter.
    Hope this gives you some idea
