    Default Motion Sickness

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone please let me know if a patient comes in to prevent motion sickness do you still code 994.6 for motion sickness? The patient is coming in to prevent motion sickness, not because they have it. what is the correct code?

    Have you looked at the V codes? Maybe V70.X
