I've been coding Oncology for a number of years now and every once in awhile this question pops up again so I was hoping for a general consensus.
When a patient comes in for chemotherapy and received therapeutic supportive drugs as well would we still use code Z51.11 as the principal diagnosis, or would we ONLY use that when the patient gets ONLY chemotherapy drugs during the visit?
