ICD-9 coding help

Tammy Posted Thu 13th of November, 2014 13:08:33 PM

What is the best ICD-9 code to use for corneal irregularity other than astigmatism 371.70 or 371.89?

SuperCoder Answered Thu 13th of November, 2014 13:22:52 PM

You should use 371.70 for corneal irregularity since it is described as a corneal deformity and shows greater specificity than 371.89 which is unspecified corneal disorder.

Hope this helps.
