    AAPC: Back to School
    What is the ICD for tricompartment osteoarthritis? If no other information is being given put the joint(knee) would it just be 715.3*? 715.0*? 716.9*?

    I would go with 715.36. 715.0* is generalized for multiple joints. 716.9* isn't ostearthritis

    We use 715.96 in our clinic.

    715.36 we have used for years regardless of how many compartments of the knee.
