ICD-9 for portopulmonary hypertension

  1. Default ICD-9 for portopulmonary hypertension
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone know what ICD-9 code to use for portopulmonary hypertension (PPHTN)? Would the combination of portal HTN (572.3) and pulm HTN (416.8) be used?

    I'm looking for this same answer. Thanks.
