    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.

    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.
