Thread: E-Code for Twisting injury

  1. #1

    Default E-Code for Twisting injury

    Wondering what E-code to use when patient presents to ED when they stepped off a curb and sustained an inversion injury to the ankle. Twisting gives me E9278, overexertion & strenuous & repetitive movements or loads??

    Default same

    That is what we use, too. 3M always prompts us to that code.
