Bacterial Vaginosis

  1. Default Bacterial Vaginosis

    Is Bacterial Vaginosis coded as N76.0 & A49.9?

    I'd go with the N code

    Vaginosis - see Vaginitis

    Vaginitis > Bacterial > N76.0

    A49 series is unspecified site and you know the site just not the bacteria.

    Also if you look A49.- excludes1 bacterial agents as the cause of diseases classified elsewhere (B95-B96)

    You will need to know the bacteria to code any more specific
