erosive gastropathy

Heidi Posted Mon 13th of March, 2017 10:38:08 AM
when the final diagnosis indicates erosive gastropathy would you use K25.9 or K31.9 or K29.60

Gastric ulcer and gastritis, both are the erosive conditions. As per coding search ICD K31.9 is the code for gastropathy, since this condition (erosive gastropathy) is not unspecified so ICD K31.89 can be used for the diagnosis.
