Thread: Asthma guidelines

    Default Asthma guidelines

    AAPC: Back to School
    If the physician states in the medical record the patient has Asthma and Allergic Rhinitis, can this be coded as 493.00(asthma w/rhinitis) or do you seperately code them as 493.90 and 477.9?

    3m gives you 493.00 when you code asthma with allergic rhinitis.
