    diagnosis and documentation reads, "HIV - get counts checked" - is this active or asymptomatic? 042 or V08

    I assume that there is nothing else mentioned about the HIV and that you are posting word-for-word documentation. With that being said, V08 would be the correct code to use for this documentation.
