ICD-10 Code for Encounter for examination and observation following transport accident
Encounter for examination and observation following transport accident
encounter for examination and observation following work accident (Z04.2)
encounter for examination for medicolegal reasons
This category is to be used when a person without a diagnosis is suspected of having an abnormal condition, without signs or symptoms, which requires study, but after examination and observation, is ruled-out. This category is also for use for administrative and legal observation status.
Persons encountering health services for examinations (Z00-Z13)
Nonspecific abnormal findings disclosed at the time of these examinations are classified to categories R70-R94.
examinations related to pregnancy and reproduction (Z30-Z36, Z39.-)
Factors influencing health status and contact with health services (Z00-Z99)
Z codes represent reasons for encounters. A corresponding procedure code must accompany a Z code if a procedure is performed. Categories Z00-Z99 are provided for occasions when circumstances other than a disease, injury or external cause classifiable to categories A00-Y99 are recorded as 'diagnoses' or 'problems'. This can arise in two main ways:
(a) When a person who may or may not be sick encounters the health services for some specific purpose, such as to receive limited care or service for a current condition, to donate an organ or tissue, to receive prophylactic vaccination (immunization), or to discuss a problem which is in itself not a disease or injury.
(b) When some circumstance or problem is present which influences the person's health status but is not in itself a current illness or injury.
