    i am having problems locating a code for abn hepatitis c ab
    I have looked under abnormal, findings and hepatitis. Would it fall under 070.9 which says unspecified viral hepatitis without mention of hepatic coma.

    Please help

    I would think 070.59 Other specified viral hepatitis w/o mention of hepatic coma would be more appropriate than unspecified.

    Just my take on it,
