Urticaria
« on: November 04, 2015, 11:08:04 AM »
What diagnosis code would you use for Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria? Is it appropriate to code it to 708.1 (L50.1) Idiopathic or 708.8 (L50.8) Other Specified Urticaria? Thanks for your input.

This is hard to answer without being able to see the patient's chart.  But what you seem to be asking, what code for Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria, seems like your first code describes Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria.
