Presented on: Thursday, May 26, 2022

Presented by: Sharon Jane Oliver, CPC, CPMA, CPC-I

Nearly half of adults in the U.S. have hypertension, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Given the high prevalence of this diagnosis, it’s important for coders to have a solid understanding of how to report it in ICD-10-CM. Coders must understand the difference between primary and secondary hypertension and be able to assign codes for related health problems such as cardiomyopathy, kidney disease, and hypertensive retinopathy. 

During this presentation, Sharon Jane Oliver, CPC, CPMA, CPC-I, will provide an in-depth review of the causes of elevated blood pressure and break down ICD-10-CM coding for hypertension and related conditions. She will discuss relevant ICD-10-CM coding guidelines and diagnostic criteria used to establish medical necessity. The presentation will conclude with a live Q&A during which attendees can submit questions.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the disease process of hypertension
  • Assign the most specific ICD-10-CM codes for hypertension and related conditions
  • Ensure that provider documentation for hypertensive conditions meets medical necessity criteria


  • Pathophysiology
