    Need your help. What is the correct coding sequence for the following DX-
    "Immunosupression secondary to Humira for inflammatory arthritis".


    OK, I've come up with the codes, now I need to know if they are correct.
    279.9; V58.69; 714.9

    I would suggest that instead of 279.9 we can use 995.29 because due to this drug Humira (Human Monoclonal Antibody in Rheumatoid Arthritis) the immune system got suppressed.
    Rest are fine.
