Hello, I have a situation in which treatment (immunotherapy) was planned, but records are not available to know if it was actually done; no other tx was planned. I coded as such:

Immunotherapy: 88 “Immunotherapy recommended, unk if administered”
All other tx fields coded to 00.
Rx Summ-Tx status: 9 “Unk if tx was given”

I get an edit “Conflict between Rx Summ–Treatment Status and treatment codes.” The only way I can clear it is by changing Immunotherapy to ’99’, which does not accurately reflect the true situation of ‘recommended, unk if administered’. Any tips on how to code this situation?
