Question: 76 In the CPT manual, Appendix C lists clinical examples of: A. Surgical procedures B. Radiological procedures C. Dermatology procedures D. Evaluation and management procedures Answer: D In the CPT manual, Appendix C lists clinical examples of evaluation and management procedures. In Appendix C, you will find multiple examples of each level of evaluation and management procedures. Reviewing these examples will not only help you determine which specific levels of codes should be used in each coding situation, it will also help you make sure the right code is assigned. Question: 77 Sylvia was seen in the office and was diagnosed with acute bronchitis with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. What is the correct ICD-9 diagnosis code for her condition?

The correct ICD- 9 diagnosis code for Sylvia’s condition is 491.22. According to ICD-9 coding guidelines, only code 491.22 (Obstructive Chronic Bronchitis with Acute Bronchitis) should be assigned. It is not necessary to also assign code 466.0 (Acute Bronchitis). In addition, code 491.21 (Obstructive Chronic Bronchitis with Acute Exacerbation) is inappropriate because it only indicates an exacerbation of the chronic bronchitis, not acute bronchitis.
