Just wanting to see if anyone is aware of an age limit on well child exam code V20.2. I am not aware of one and neither is my supervisor. She came and asked me, so I thought I would check to see if yall knew of one. Thanks in advance for any information regarding this.

The v20.2 goes for the 29day through 17. At age 18 you are legally an adult therefore would no longer be using well child codes. Its more logic than anything. :)

I found the 0-17 age listed in the ICD book, its listed next to the code with a "P" next to it which refers you to the bottom that staes the "P" stands fpr Pediatric age 0-17
I use Ingenix 2013 Expert edition.
