I believe the answer you gave to the 5-14 general coding question is inaccurate. The question was about the correct coding of DM with a URI and CKD. Your answer gave the code for a UTI not URI.


You are absolutely correct that we gave the code for UTI and not the URI. Thank you for catching our error!

The first sentence of the second paragraph should read as follows: If the provider documentation states the patient has URI, DM and CKD, the correct coding should be J06.9 (not N39.0 as originally stated), E11.22, N18 (code the stage of CKD).
