Does anyone know how you would code Collagenosis Colitis? Would you code them separately since there is no code that specifies this(that I can find)?
Thanks,
Sherry:confused:

it was a difficult dx to find!

Collagenous colitis is assigned code 558.9, other and unspecified noninfectious gastroenteritis
and colitis. (See Coding Clinic, November-December 1987, page 8.)

hope that helps!
:)
