Question about zeros on the end of a ICD 9 code....don't remember seeing this in my CPC-H program. If there is a dx code of 244.90, we were told that is ok to remove zeros but not add any digits. 244.90 is invalid, if I remove the zero, it becomes 244.9, hypothyroidism. Is it ok to remove the zero? Thanks!
