Urine culture

Nancy Posted Thu 03rd of December, 2015 12:20:34 PM

Patient comes in with symptoms of UTI leukocytes and blood present on dipstick. Culture comes back negative should N39.0 be used or should symptoms be reported on claim for negative urine culture.

Thanks for your query,

If the symptoms come back negative in the pathology report, then we will code symptoms only.
