We have J41.1 (mucopurulent chronic bronchitis) and J44.1 (COPD exacerbation) on an outpatient record with support for each on this date of service. With the ICD-10 excludes 1 notes, which code do we keep, which do we remove, and why? We do NOT have the option to query the provider.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Peggy
