E code dilemma

  1. Default E code dilemma
    Medical Coding Books
    Good Afternoon everyone,
    Just a quick question, had a patient come in too see doctor b/c she fell. She had no symptoms, no scratches, no problems, nothing. The only dx give was E code E888.9.

    I know I cannot send this out, but what can I do? Would this patient be considered self pay? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.
