Sepsis vs bacteremia

  1. Default Sepsis vs bacteremia
    New Call-to-action
    If anyone can help on clarifying the Diagnosis coding for sepsis vs bacteremia; I know we can't code them together, but if we were given both diagnosis bacteremia R78.81 and A41.9 unspecified sepsis which one do we code? or if we were given bacteremia R78.81 bacteremia and A41.51 sepsis due to E. coli which one do we code? Any help will be really appreciated.

    Thank you so much for your help. It was helpful.
