i need a code for hemiparesis i can only find I69.959 and per my doctor they are not hemiplegic. do you have a icd 10 code for this?
and for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the sinus, i need a code. i found C85.81 but per my doctor this is not correct.
thank you in advance!

Greetings from SuperCoder!
When we search ICD 10 code for hemiparesis, it instructs us to see “Hemiplegia”. So, code I69.959 is correct. And for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the sinus, code C85.91 is appropriate since type of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is not specified.
