ascites secondary to rt heart failure
Home Care Coding General
Code for this is I50.9 and reason for referral. Patient also has chronic diastolic heart failure not currently in exacerbation. I don't believe I can use both codes on same claim, so how would this be coded?

Wouldn't that then be acute on chronic DHF?
