Thread: ICD coding immunosuppressant Infusion post Kidney transplant

  1. #1

    Question ICD coding immunosuppressant Infusion post Kidney transplant

    AAPC: Back to School
    If someone could help me code the diagnosis for the following scenario it would be greatly appreciated.

    A patient with end-stage renal disease receives a successful kidney transplant, meaning that he no longer has ESRD or chronic kidney disease. He goes to a physician’s office once a month to receive an infused immunosuppressive therapy, which is required to prevent his body from rejecting the transplant. What diagnosis code(s) would be used on a claim for the visit for the infusion?
