Hello Apurva,

Thank you for your question.

 

Yes, you can report R82.79 (Other abnormal findings on microbiological examination of urine) for positive culture findings of urine. You can additionally report an appropriate code for specific organism; if documented in medical documentation.

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks
