    Can anyone help me out with Influenza A and Strep throat diagnosis? I am not suppose to code these together. Can anyone give any suggestions on the proper way to code these diagnosis in ICD -10? Thanks for your help

    Hi ,

    I would code both the dx as Influenza A description states (J09.X2: Influenza due to identified novel influenza A virus with pharyngitis) but it does not specify the type . Hence, I will code J02.0 Streptococcal pharyngitis as well.

    Thanks,
    Sarita

    Hey thanks so much for replying. J02.0 has an exclude 1 note of J09.X2, J10.1, J11.1. So I wouldn't be able to Use J09.X2 with J02.0. Any other suggestion.
