HEALED GASTRIC ULCER - diag inquiry

Melanie Posted Tue 23rd of February, 2010 20:58:10 PM

I did some reviewing on a particular patient who was determined to have had a healed gastric ulcer. The physician did in fact indicate this and the only close-enough code I could find was v12.79 to indicate personal history.

Unless, there is another more appropriate diagnosis code for healed gastric ulcer, Im afraid that my brain is officially mush at the moment! LOL

Thoughts?

TIA

V12.79 is the ICD code if the Dx says only "healed gastric ulcer" and no other diagnpostic statement mentioned.
