Hi Everyone,

Coding tip for the day…

Are you searching for a code for cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome. Look no further. Our outpatient coders helped to bring this question to Coding Clinic.

According to Coding Clinic response to the BMC query, assign the following codes:

Assign code T40.7x1A, Poisoning by cannabis (derivatives), accidental (unintentional), initial encounter, and code R11.2, Nausea with vomiting, unspecified, for the documented nausea and vomiting due to marijuana. 

Enjoy your coding!
