Can you please clarify the proper diagnosis code for Acute Rhinosinusitis? As providers are choosing diagnosis J00 for Acute Rhinosinusitis, as are charting system(Amazing Charts) states this is the correct code. Per ICD-10 this diagnosis includes Acute rhinitis but not Rhinosinusitis? When researching dx for Acute Rhinosinusitis it refers us to J01. section. Please advise, thank you
