Hiv - 2
Could someone please explain the proper coding for a patient with HIV - 2 who is asymptomatic and also a patient with HIV - 2 and symptomatic? I'm confused about the correct use of B9735.
If a patient is asymptomatic this code wouldn't apply, so what code is used for asymptomatic HIV - 2?
If a patient is symptomatic is B9735 coded first then the disease? (The note states that codes B95-B97 are secondary codes).
