OFFICIAL CODING GUIDANCE per VAPING, from the CDC

From the CDC… (official diagnosis coding guidance)

In a virtually unprecedented step, the CDC has issued ‘official diagnosis coding guidance’ on the subject of Vaping!   This is HUGE!  

The purpose of this document is to provide official diagnosis coding guidance for healthcare encounters related to the 2019 health care encounters and deaths related to e-cigarette, or vaping, product use associated lung injury (EVALI). This guidance is consistent with current clinical knowledge about e-cigarette, or vaping, related disorders.
