If a patient had asthma but has been dormant for years, would this be HX of asthma and coded as V12.69 or will always be considered active?

I would first clarify that with the physician. Based on my experience I would think this would be coded as a history of asthma. The reason I say to clarify it with the physician is if the asthma has been dormant for years I wonder why the physician is coding to it now in the note.
