cholelithiasis and history of jaundice

  1. Default cholelithiasis and history of jaundice
    Medical Coding Books
    That is the only information given to me on the charge slip.
    I'm thinking 574.20 for the choleliathiasis

    but what do I use for history of jaundice?

    V12.2 (Hx of endocrine, metabolic, and immunity disorders), or V12.3? (History of diseases of blood and blood-forming organs)

    Kinda depends on what caused the jaundice - that's a symptom, not a disease. Sorry - I know that wasn't much help!

    Why are you coding off of a charge slip? You need to be coding from the doctor documentation.
