congenital heart disease

Tiffany Posted Mon 18th of February, 2013 17:25:17 PM

If a pediatric patient had a congenital heart defect such as VSD or PDA and had corrected surgery. Do we code the 745.4 and V15.1?

Correct. Congenital VSD can be coded as 745.4. Note that ICD-9 codes 740-759 are for "congenital anomalies". Bill V15.1 as secondary code.
