Hello,

Can anyone answer whether or not it is acceptable to code for both Sickle Cell with crisis D57.0 and without crisis D57.1 together? My thought is no because how can someone be in crisis and not in crisis at the same time. However, I am receiving some conflicting information on this.

Thank you,

What conflicting information are you receiving? If you have sickle cell disorder, you are either in crisis or you are not.
