Influenza and Strep Throat diagnosis on same visit!!

  1. Default Influenza and Strep Throat diagnosis on same visit!!
    Medical Coding Books
    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

  2. Default Influenza and Strep Throat diagnosis on same visit!!
    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.


  3. Default
    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.

  4. Exclamation Influenza and Strep Throat diagnosis on same visit!!
    We are receiving the same denial. Per Rep page 700 ICD 10 Acute upper respiratory infections (J00-J06) Excludes influenza virus with other respiratory manifestations (j09.x2,j10.1,j11.1) They are saying we can't use any other dx pages 700 and 701 which is odd So we can't bill the Flu with any other dx Strep J02.0 or Sinusitis J01.00 We are waiting a reply from the carrier
