Thread: Need ICD-9 code for nail

    Default Need ICD-9 code for nail

    AAPC: Back to School
    The patient had a partial tip of his finger amputated. The nail was growing back at a weird angle so the physician totally removed the nail. Any idea on an ICD-9 code? Thanks.

    Default 703.9

    When I looked up "deformity - nail" I was led to 703.9.
