    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient had a lap chole done copt code 47562. Path comes back as chronic cholecystitis and cholesterolosis and also patient had lysis of adhesions. I coded it as
    575.8- adhesions
    575.11- chronic cholecystitis
    575.6 for cholesterolosis

    boss told me to recheck dx codes Is something wrong what I did?
