COPD exac, Asthma exac, Tracheobronchitis, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Interstitial Lung Disease
This patient was diagnosed with COPD exac., unspecified asthma exac, tracheobronchitis (J40), Pulmonary fibrosis, and interstitial lung disease. The patient is also on antibiotics for the tracheobronchitis. I am thinking I should code J44.1, J45.901, J44.0, J40, J84.10. I am afraid to up-code and decided against coding the interstitial lung disease and coded the pulmonary fibrosis. Does anyone have any thoughts about this? Thank you.
