    Question UTI's

    AAPC: Back to School
    when dr writes UTI, do you bill just the 599.0 or do you use an additional code such 041.9 because you do not know what bacteria it is?

    I use 599.0 only.

    I use 599.0 unless there was a culture done and then I wait to see what the results of the culture are. Then code for the bacteria if there is any.

    I also use 599.0 (which I believe will not be a good code after October 1st). *new codes coming*!
