G30 Alzheimer's vs Vascular dementia
I have a question regarding G30.- Alzheimer's disease. I understand including dementia with or without behavioral disturbance, but when vascular dementia is included then F02.8- would not be included correct? Otherwise you are stating two different types of dementia for the Alzheimer's either vascular or dementia. For the excludes 1 or excludes2 notes should be more specific either excludes 1 for both Vascular dementia F01.5- and for F02.- . Under F01 there are no excludes notes and there are excludes under F02. I think for less confusion for coders who are teaching it should be under both and more specific.
