Can someone tell me when you have a dx of:

Hepatic Encephalopathy
End stage liver disease
Hepatitis C.

Would you use code 572.8 only or 572.2, and 070.70?

Is the liver dx caused by the hepatitis? Is the hep viral, acute, in remission, etc? Without answers to these, I would code the 5722 and the 07070.

My view on this we code this as 070.71 as we can combined and code hepatic coma and in addition to this 572.8.
