    AAPC: Back to School
    If anyone has been to a workshop taught by Margie Vaught, she says to use 715.3x.

    Default Coding DJD

    I code DJD all the time in my line of work with orthopedic physicians. I was taught to use 715.16, etc. Hope this doesn't totally confuse you too much with all the other answers!

    Our ALPHA II Code Wizard program defines 715.96 as "degenerative joint disease lower leg".

    Hello Gina,

    I just started in Home Health coding. I would like to befriend you for any HH coding issues I may have. I am still trying to found my way around. Thanks

    Default Knee DJD

    I tend to agree with Kandigrl79 on this. I too was taught that if the physician states "Knee DJD", it is localized and therefore codes to 715.36.
