    I code EEg/EKG. My question is this?

    If the impression states "Abnormal EKG", would I code abnromal AND the symptoms ??

    I know in the coding world, if there is a definitive dx you do NOT code the symptoms,
    but in this case Im not quite sure, I recvd several different answers here in my office.

    Thanks everyone!!

    Thumbs up

    I code for two cardiology practices and I do code the abnormal 1st and then the findings.

    OK so you code the for example 794.31 as the 1st dx, and then 786.05 second ?
