Medical termMedical code
Example: Angina pectoris In this example,I20.9was chosen as a correct code because it matches the doctor’s diagnosis as it discusses angina. Let’s examine why the other codes are not appropriate to use. I24.0Code does not use the word angina. K55.1Code was not chosen because it talks about the intestines. This is not discussed in the doctor’s note. J02.0Code was not chosen because it talks about a Streptococcal sore throat. This is not discussed in the doctor’s note.I20.9 Other form of angina pectoris I24.0Acute myocardial infarction K55.1Chronic vascular insufficiency of intestine J02.0Streptococcal sore throat
