What is icd-9-cm code for seasonal allergy?
I use the code 477.9
Wouldn't a Vcode V1509 be more appropriate? Personal History of allergy, other than to medicinal agent?
Unless the patient is experiencing/currently has an episode of their seasonal allergies ie 477.9 Allergic Rhinitis.
ICD9CM is the official system of assigning codes associated with hospitals in the Untied States. Originally used to code and classify mortality data from death certificates until 1999. It consist of a numerical list of the disease code, an alphabetical index of the diseases entries and a classification system for the procedures.
Not concrete on this, But I would believe its origin lies in "Old Wive's Tales", that generally revolve around what was observed by being near or in hay and gaining a fever afterwards. Hay Fever is another term for seasonal allergies. Seasonal allergies are often pollen related, and hay tends to be a producer of particularly allergy inducing pollen.
By year-round, I'm guessing you mean "indoor" allergies as opposed to seasonal "outdoor" allergies. Seasonal allergies a.k.a."hay fever," generally occurs in the spring and fall when trees, grasses, and weeds bloom and release pollen into the air. Year-round allergy symptoms are usually set off by indoor allergens like dust mites, mold, and animal dander and occur throughout the year. Xo, Smartiiz.

It usually means that they have allergies to something. Usually things such as pollen or dust.
