    I am looking for ICD10 for the above diagnosis. K73.2 for chronic active hepatitis. Do I need to add for grade 3, stage 3

    Chronic Active Hepatitis leads to the ICD-10-CM code to the K73.2, there is no specific defined code for the stage of the condition. So, need not to provide a separate code for the stage.

    NOTE: Payment for the condition is depend on the procedure code(s), whereas ICD-10-CM (K73.2) is  to support the procedure, hence ICD-10-CM (K73.2) is appropriate and sufficient.
