Iron Overload due to Blood Transfusion

    Default Iron Overload due to Blood Transfusion

    I need the ICD-9 code for "iron overload due to blood transfusion". I have narrowed it down to 790.6 or 275.0, but would like to see if anyone else can find anything different.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    790.6 but I also think you're going to need the 999.89

    What about 275.0 with E934.7?
