Title: Coding question
Post by: nanap on November 29, 2017, 10:50:19 AM
If you are coding for a dx of Diabetes with hyperglycemia would you code it as an E11.65 or R73.9 for Hyperglycemia and then E11.6 for diabetes

My research is showing that E11.65 would be appropriate since hyperglycemia is a complication of the diabetes.
