AMI Code Assignment
Greetings - For those facilities that do CABG procedures- please clarify your practice of assigning the subsequent MI code in the following example - Patient is admitted with and AMI and a LHC is completed . This does show occlusive CAD. The patient is discharged and brought in 3 weeks later for an elective CABG procedure. What code do you use for the AMI ? 3 weeks later - is the CABG treatment of the AMI? Thank you for insight into correct code assignment.
