I'm looking for the correct coding of BK viremia. I'm leaning toward 790.8 (Viremia, unspecified) and 079.89 (other specified viral infection) My dilema is the 790.8. Should I use it or forgo it? Any assistance would be appreciated.

I would forgo the 790.8 since it is a less specified and a symptom code. 079.89 is an actual infection code so it is more specific. Just my opinion :)
