Thread: AC joint arthritis

  1. #1

    Default AC joint arthritis

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is AC osteoartritis 715.11 or 715.91? Can anyone help?

  2. #2


    715.11 Primary localized
    715.91 Unspecified whether generalized or localized

    Most insurance prefer you not to used the unspecified because come ICD -10 those that stated use the unspecified will get their claims denied

    Is this primary localized or generalized? Secondary to another source?

    I would need to see the notes to help you out.

    Thanks, Connie
