    Question V58.11 or V67.2
    Medical Coding Books
    If the patient is on chemo, but not receiving chemo the day he/she is seen, what would be appropriate diagnosis code for OV between chemo treatments.
    V58.11 or V67.2?

    I am new to Oncology, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Neither, if the patient is between treatments the appropriated dx code is the code for the cancer
