    Default ICD9 for diverticulitis with abscess
    Exam Training Packages
    Need other's opinions. Can anyone tell me if diverticulitis with abscess would be coded as 562.11 and 569.5?

    Thanks for any help.

    Unless you have the exact area of the diverticulitis (like the small intestine, duodenum, or jejunum, ETC for 562.01 instead) those are the codes I would use.
