• ICD-10 Equivalent for Status Post Refractive Surgery

    Question: I used ICD-9 code V45.69 for patients who are status post refractive surgery. I am unable to find equivalent ICD-10 code. Is there a specific code I should be using?

    Answer: Z98.89 Other specified postprocedural states (Personal history of surgery, not elsewhere classified) is the most appropriate. This code would be used for internal tracking or supporting documentation as it is not typically a paying diagnosis.
