Thread: dx code for CHA

    Question dx code for CHA

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was wondering if anyone knows the code for compound hypermetropic astigmatism? I was searching and from what I read it says it's a regular astigmatism 367.21 or would I code the hypermetropia and astigmatism separate?

    Thank you!

    I would use 367.20 based on what I see in the index: Astigmatism (compound)(congenital).
