ICD F90.2 is for combined type ADHD, ICD F90.1, F90.2, F90.8 & F90.9 are the codes according to the type of ADHD. Use the code according to the type of ADHD, if it not mentioned then code F90.9 as unspecified type. Your code is correct for combined type ADHD. Check the reason of denial and and appeal it again with accurate code.
