Current Chemotherapy V code

    Default Current Chemotherapy V code
    Medical Coding Books
    Patient is admitted for flank pain, currently undergoing chemo treatments for gastic CA, but not being admitted for treatments at this time. Is V58.11 also used to indicate current chemo treatments or just for admission encounters only?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hello,

    V58.11 IS ONLY USED IF THEY ARE RECIEVING CURRENT CHEMOTHERPY TREATMENT.
