Thread: ICD-9 codes

  1. #1

    Default ICD-9 codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would I code this properly?
    Pt is seen in the Cariologist office today for follow-up. The pt was discharged from Sunnyale hospital 5 wks ago after having an acute nontransmural myocardial infarction. Catherization revealed a 90% obstruction of the LAD. Pt is also taking Lasix for congestive heart failure and baby aspirin for the CAD. Review of echocardiogram indicates pt has aortic valve stenosis and mitral valve regurgitaion. Schedule pt for CABG of the LAD in 1 wk.

    I only need ICD-9 codes and no procedure codes or morphology codes. No sequencing required. Can use E and V codes.

    Yes - it sounds very familiar...like it's from a remote or travel coding pre-employment test, perhaps for risk adjustment?
