    The status code would only be reported during any admission after the HSCT, to indicate that the patient already had a history of HSCT before.
    For example:

    • If a patient comes in for the first stem cell transplant you would use the reason for the transplant (lymphoma) and the principal diagnosis and capture the transplant itself with a procedural coding. The procedure code would describe type of the transplant (autologous/allogeneic). 

    • If a patient comes in 10 days after the HSCT for a chemotherapy treatment, you would use admit for chemo as pdx and Z94.84 as additional diagnosis to indicate that the patient is after stem cell transplant.
