Can V45.89 be used for any postprocedural OV or should you code V67.09. I have been struggling with this for some time.
Thanks

with out knowing the type of surgery involved, I would use the V67.09 for general follow up after surgery, unless there is a specific after care code such as after care for a fx or joint replacment.

Hope this helps
