    Default Code for B-cell Lymphoma

    AAPC: Back to School

    Provider wrote: "invasive B-cell lymphoma of L4-L5 spine."

    Patient also has a hx of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

    I appreciate any ideas how to code invasive B-cell lymphoma of L4-L5 spine.

    I would use the code 202.87 or 202.80. Hope this helps a little bit.
