I have a Dr. that put both Bronchitis and URI as the Dx. Can you code both or would you code only the Bronchitis? Thanks for your help in advance. :)

it wouldn't be "wrong" to code both - but "both" probably wouldn't be needed to support the claim. I've coded both Bronchitis and URI before.
{that's my opinion on the posted matter}
