    Hi,

    We can code this as 493.90 and 477.9.

    As 493.00 were it must be mentioned "allergic with stated cause"

    our encoder codes it to 493.00

    Default allergic rhinitis and asthma

    Guru,

    does your encoder require the indication of specific association of the two conditions, such as, 'with or due to' for the 493.00 to be assigned? Could you clarify along these lines,please?

    Many thx
    Jean C.
