    Smile insertional achilles tendonitis

    Is there a single code for insertional achilles tendonitis? I'm using 726.71 and 726.73. Just wondering if there is a more appropriate code.
    Thanks...

    Default Insertional Achilles tendinitis.

    2017 ICD-10-CM Coding Book
    726.73 is for calcaneal spur. Only one code available for insertional achilles tendinitis 726.71. It's also acceptable to use for Achilles tendinitis non-insertional.
