    I'm coding ER charts. Often Hepatitis C is listed in Past Medical History. When listed in PMH can Hep C be coded as current?

    I'm not familiar with Hep C , do you code the History of Hep C V12.09? Is Hep C something that can be cured?
    There is a Viral Hepatitis C in remission 070.54.
    I would probably just code history of unlesss the doctor say otherwise.
    Just my thoughts..=)

    Per a physician Hep C is not curable. The remission code is interesting. I'll have to inquire to the physician about this. Thanks
