Dx code for Hypercoagulable state

    Default Dx code for Hypercoagulable state

    I'm looking at 289.89 and 286.9. I can't use 289.81 nor 289.82 because I don't have the specificity. Any help would be appreciated.

    I use 289.81 quite often when coding for an IV Filter procedure. Not sure what post-op Dx your physician is using but I would think 289.89 would be in the ballpark.

    Don't think so. History of DVT and coumadin.
