Code "personal history of peptic ulcer."
Weegy: A peptic ulcer, also known as ulcus pepticum, PUD or peptic ulcer disease,[1] is an ulcer (defined as mucosal erosions equal to or greater than 0.5 cm) of an area of the gastrointestinal tract that is usually acidic and thus extremely painful. [ As many as 80% of ulcers are associated with Helicobacter pylori, a spiral-shaped bacterium that lives in the acidic environment of the stomach, however only 40% of those cases go to a doctor. Ulcers can also be caused or worsened by drugs such as aspirin and other NSAIDs. Contrary to general belief, more peptic ulcers arise in the duodenum (first part of the small intestine, just after the stomach) rather than in the stomach. About 4% of stomach ulcers are caused by a malignant tumor, so multiple biopsies are needed to exclude cancer. Duodenal ulcers are generally benign. ] User: Code "family history of breast cancer, female." User: Provide the ICD-9-CM codes for peroperative evaluation for elective cholecystectomy due to gallstones. Patient is seen by pulmonologist because of COPD. Weegy: The answer is V72.82, 574.20, 496 (More)

Using the I-9 to I-10 GEMs file, map the following codes to ICD-10. 427.31 and 558.1
Weegy: ICD-10-CM is the long awaited diagnosis code revision to ICD-9-CM. [ [ [ On January 16, 2009, the Department of Health and Human Services r eleased the HIPAA Administrative Simplification: Modifications to Medical Data Code Set Standards to Adopt ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Final Rule (CMS-0013-F). The compliance date for implementation of the ICD-10-CM/PCS Coding System is October 1, 2013 for all covered entities. Why do we need ICD-10-CM? Frankly, ICD-9-CM is running out of codes. Hundreds of new diagnosis codes are submitted by medical societies, quality monitoring organizations and others annually. ICD-10-CM will allow not only for more codes but also for greater specificity and thus better epidemiological tracking. This will allow providers to better identify certain patients with specific conditions that will benefit from tailored disease management programs, e.g. diabetes, hypertension, asthma. ? ... ?
