Correct Influenza Diagnosis Coding

    Does anyone have a concrete answer on how to correctly code for confirmed Influenza diagnosis? Our providers are only documenting Influenza A or B positive. They don't go beyond that specificity. We have conflicting answers from multiple resources. One telling us we should be using J10.1 and another telling us to use J11.1 as they state Influenza A is unidentified. To me The Influenza is identified as A or B, but not elsewhere classified (J10.1) and the description under this code seems to fit. I'm hoping someone can provide someone insight on this coding conundrum. Thank you!
