    Inpatient Behavioral Hospital: Cerebrovascular Dementia w/Behavioral Disturbance. Would codes 290.40 & 312.90 be correct or 290.40 & 294.11? Is 294.11 for the Behavioral Disturbance only for the Alzheimer's Type Dementia, not the Cerebrovascular Dementia?

    Please have a look at 331.19 & 294.11. I am sure at one fact that 294.11 is not only coded for Alzheimer's but for any disease responsible for dementia.
