    Does anyone use V71.4 for protocal examinations following auto accidents where no injury is found and "reason for exam" just states MVC?

    Yes, I use this code.
    V71.4 Observation following other accident
    Examination of individual involved in motor vehicle traffic accident
    - is used when a patient presents with a suspected condition, that is ruled out after further examination; no further treatment or follow-up is required for the suspected condition.
