hospice sequencing

Patient on hospice for ESRD....also has DM, HTN and HF....how is this sequenced? does the DM always have to come first?


  • I've usually coded this scenario with the "hypertensive heart and chronic kidney disease with heart failure and with stage 5 or ESRD" (I13.2) primary, followed by your diabetes code, then the code for ESRD.
