Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

I27.2 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other secondary pulmonary hypertension. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code I272 is used to code Pulmonary hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is an increase of blood pressure in the pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, or pulmonary capillaries, together known as the lung vasculature, leading to shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, leg swelling and other symptoms. Pulmonary hypertension can be a severe disease with a markedly decreased exercise tolerance. It was first identified by Ernst von Romberg in 1891. According to the most recent classification, it can be one of six different types.
