    Default GE Junction

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All.

    Would 530.85 be the appropriate code for metaplasia of the GE junction? ICD-9 indicates using this code for the esophagus, but does not mention the GE junction. I have not been able to find a reference that definitively states if the GE junction is considered part of the esophagus, part of the stomach or is its own entity. (Got a lot of learning to do for ICD-10 )

    Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I have talked to one person who feels 530.85 is correct, but does not have authoritative sources on the subject.
