NLA Announces Support of ICD-10 Elevated Lp(a) Code Proposal
The National Lipid Association announced on Wednesday its support of the Lipoprotein(a) Foundation’s efforts to promote a new ICD-10 Diagnostic-Code for high Lp(a).
The NLA believes the new code will be beneficial in identifying lethal risk factors in patients. To further support this initiative, NLA members are encouraged to email the ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee before November 13, 2017.
To help support the new code, download this email. NLA members should copy and paste the content and send it to nchsicd10CM@cdc.gov after adding their signature and customizing the email as they see fit.
