    Default Hypertensive Cardiomegaly

    Does 402.90 cover this as it's implied or am I missing something?

    I would say 402.90 is correct. The index for cardiomegaly has an option for hypertensive and the code is 402.90. When you go to the tabular and look right under the 402 heading, the includes box list cardiomegaly.
