need help with dx for possible exposure to hepatitis. Could you use
V01.79 Other viral diseases, because the V02 codes are for carrier or suspected carrier

Thanks
Kim

since the key word is POSSIBLE...I would not code it this way unless you can confirm that there was actual exposure to the disease.
