Question
Hi.
I was wondering if there is a diagnosis code for chronic anticougulation?
Thanks.
Tara

Answer
Hi Tara,
The closest code I see is 790.92 which is:
Abnormal coagulation profile Abnormal or prolonged:bleeding time, coagulation time, partial thromboplastin time [PTT], prothrombin time [PT]
The other code that may be appropriate is 286.9:
Other and unspecified coagulation defects, Defective coagulation NOS, Deficiency, coagulation factor NOS,Delay, coagulation,
Disorder: coagulation, hemostasis
I hope this is helpful!
