ICD 9 questions

Fran Posted Thu 06th of December, 2012 14:02:08 PM

follicular lymphoma in situ - 232.5 is this the right ICD 9 code

ASSOCIATED HIGH GRADE DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU - from an outpatient point of veiw would this be coded 233.0

Remember that if the physician documents the carcinoma as in situ, you should instead report carcinoma in situ code 232.5 (Carcinoma in situ of skin; skin of trunk, except scrotum).

233.0 is true for Ductal carcinomaa in situ breast.

I agree with your set of codes.
