Hi, please specify if this is the confirmed diagnosis. As per guidelines, we can only code a confirmed diagnosis. In case if confirmed diagnosis is not given, we may code the symptoms instead. Also, we may only code a symptom with a confirmed diagnosis when the symptom is not associated with the confirmed diagnosis. As per current documentation you have provided, you may like to check codes N39.0, Urinary tract infection, site not specified and Z16.20, Resistance to unspecified antibiotic. Thank you.
