DX for Adult with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

  1. #1
    Question DX for Adult with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
    Medical Coding Books
    We recently had an adult come in for care and he was diagnosised with FAS when he was a baby and still has medical issues from that? Do we still use the same code for this even if he is an adult - 760.71? Thanks!

  2. Default
    The patient's current dx may be a late effect of the FAS.....

  3. Question what is the late effect code for that?
    I have an 11 yr old with nonprogressive encephalopathy secondary to FAS. I can't find a late effect code for FAS or an encephalopathy code "due to" FAS.
