At the meeting I went to awhile ago just for this issue, we were told that to code the sepsis, there has to be certain criteria met--there have to be co-conditions due to the sepsis such as, fever, funky blood work results etc. Otherwise, you have to code down to the 599.0-UTI.
I don't have my "cheat sheet" in this office today otherwise I could give you better specifics--but hope I helped some.
