Find the ICD-10-CM Code For: Hypertension with Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease

I just wanted to share this quick tutorial I posted the other day with you guys. It shows how to find the ICD-10-CM code for hypertension with stage 5 chronic disease. Sounds pretty straightforward at first.

But is it? Do you know the ICD-10-CM guidelines for coding this?

Watch the video below!

Were you able to code this? This coding scenario is one that tends to confuse people who are in my medical coding study groups. But that is ok! It takes time to learn medical coding, and there are many different guidelines you need to become familiar with. These are the types of questions we cover in the study group.

PS-There’s still time to sign up for September’s Medical Coding Study Groups! If you are currently a medical coding student and would like more help with ICD-10-CM coding, these groups are for you. GO HERE for more info
