Hi,

Z94.89 would be more appropriate ICD 10 CM code (other transplanted organ and tissue status). Please use ICD-10 CM code A04.71 (Enterocolitis due to Clostridium Difficile, recurrent) for recurring C Difficile infection. Use A04.71 as the principal diagnosis followed by Z94.89 as the secondary diagnosis as some payers may not consider Z code as a principal diagnosis code.

Hope, provided information would be helpful.
