Hello everyone,

Please clarify on self inflicted open tongue bite due to seizure and final diagnosis documented by physician is epilepsy. Do I need to code S01552A (open bite of oral cavity) in additional to G40909 and external cause codes for tongue bite X58xxxA for exposure to other specified factors. I do not see an external cause code for accidentally biting tongue by self.

Thank you for your feedback and thoughts in advance.
