Question Hypertensive Urgency

Can anyone please tell me what ICD-9 code to use for hypertensive urgency? I have used the 401.9 in the past but this just does not seem right. Thanks for any help.

Default hypertensive urgency

Just found this post when I was looking up the same thing. I think the link below will help. It explained it well for me.
